Learning can be defined as a measurable parameter by which identification of the amount of information one individual can gain through nature can be identified. Learning is done by changing experiences. One can learn through different styles, through reading, writing, hearing, and seeing. But every one learning style is different. Some can catch the concept easily some gain information by analyzing it in many ways. This paper discusses the different learning styles that can be used in human resource development. First, the paper discusses different styles of learning then discusses the importance of the learning curve and the importance of transferring knowledge in the workplace. Then it discusses the preparation of a suitable technique to organize a training event following it an evaluation is done and an assessment of the success of the event is discussed in this paper.
1.1 Known among the executive Compare different learning styles
The learning styles of every individual person are different. The term learning style means an elite arrangement through which a person incorporates, operates, identifies, and gathers knowledge and information about any topic or subject.

Kolb’s Learning Styles:
There are four stages in Kolb’s learning style which works in two levels.
Knowledge through Kolb’s learning style is gathered by the alternation of the experiences. The four stages are given below:
Learning starts through:
- Getting a concrete experience, followed by
- Reflection and observation of the experience which is also called reflective observation, which leads to
- Creation of abstract concept which is also termed in the learning style as abstract conceptualization, and then
- Examine or test the concept in the future by active experimentation.
Honey and Mumford’s Style:
Activists: the learners who learn by doing is called an activist. Activists have to learn through using their hands.
Theorist: This learner learns through the hypothesis made by the activists. They need models, thesis, truth, and concept with specific aims to take participate in the learning process.
Reflectors: these learners learn by looking at and interpreting things. They learn through analyzing the situation or hypothesis created through one incident.
Pragmatists: they learn through putting the hypothesis or situation into implementation and practical uses in life. They learn through how to apply learning in reality, problem-solving case studies, and discussion.
Similarities and differences between Kolb’s learning styles and Honey and Mumford’ learning styles
According to Cyber Computing (2018), the four stages of Kolb’s learning cycle have been described by the four key points of Honey and Mumford styles and they are ‘activist’, ‘reflector’, ‘theorist’, and ‘pragmatist’. Though the concept is based on Kolb’s learning model the explanation is different which should be confused with each other. According to Honey and Mumford, the origin of their model was Kolb’s learning cycle. But the words for description are different from theirs.
The terms used in the model meant: Activist: who does the accommodation; Reflection: the person does the diverging; theorist: the person does the job of assimilation, And Pragmatist: the person does the job of converging. The larger part of the people learn the entire model but shows only one or two of them. The introvert types of person tend to show the reflector or theorist traits, and the extrovert persons show the other two traits that are activists or pragmatists. Honey and Mumford’s style is adapted by Kolb’s model. The stages of Kolb’s learning style are functions of the learners explained in Honey and Mumford’s learning style. The similarities are given below……….
