I don't know if "teaching them to be meaner" really makes more sense, but it doesn't need to, obviously whatever he taught them worked.
It looks as if he taught them "bigger is better" and "win through superior firepower".
But did they really need Khan to teach them those things?
They already learned them from Nero.
Nero had to have his whole ship and crew sucked into a black hole to even put a crack in the Enterprise. He had them jumping at their own shadows but without Red Matter he wasn't up to much.
The Enterprise was a bug on a windscreen compared to the Vengeance, let loose, that ship would have put the Narada to shame within a few weeks.
