What's My Learning Style? is a training assessment for management development that helps trainers and individuals maximize learning results through developing an understanding of behavioral style. The instrument identifies adult learning preferences and helps individuals apply this knowledge to build on strengths, minimize weaknesses and become more flexible at using different learning styles.
Before you roll out your next training initiative, it is important to first consider how the individuals in your audience learn. Every person uses a preferred personal learning style during the learning process, whether or not they are conscious of it. Some people learn best in a group, while others prefer to learn independently. Some approach learning with enthusiasm; some require time for reflection. There isn't one "correct" style, but building awareness of behavioral style for your learners is the key to maximizing results for both your audience and your training efforts.
What's My Learning Style? is a quick and effective tool that accurately identifies a preference for one of four learning styles: direct, spirited, considerate, or systematic. In addition to becoming familiar with their preferences, individuals will learn how to maximize the strengths of that style, overcome any potential trouble spots, and develop the ability to function using a variety of different styles.
