producer-1What is your Producer score?

Producers are practical and ‘down to earth’ realists.  They like to ‘get the job done’.  They have little time for theories for the sake of theories; if it works it’s right for them.  Producers have little time for open-ended discussions; rather they like to focus on the task.  They are not generally people oriented and can undertake a task too quickly without considering the ramifications of a hasty action.

  • see immediate relevance of the learning to their job
  • have practical and clear guidelines
  • try out and practice their learning
  • make the learning experience relate to their work
  • draw up action plans

PRODUCERS DON’T LIKE

  • being presented with lots of theory
  • being unable to relate the learning quickly to their current job or problem
  • to work with too many theorists
