So?

  • Give people time to work things out for themselves — Intrapersonal intelligence is something that they may excel at.
  • Allow folks the opportunity to change their surroundings if it’s something that could increase their receptivity to learning and new ideas, given a more Naturalistic setting.
  • Whiteboard things out for your team members. Visual learners will appreciate ideas being described from a different perspective.
