All of us, including top leaders, find ourselves in a job search at some point. And, if you’re in a leadership position, it takes that much longer because there just aren’t as many jobs available at the top.
This Inventory will help you determine your learning style. Start by copying the Inventory and pasting into a Word File or E-mail or printing it.
Fill out the Inventory by reading the word in the left column and then answering the questions in the successive three columns to see how you respond to each situation. Your answers may fall into all three columns, but one column will likely contain the most answers. The dominant column indicates your primary learning style.
When you have completed the inventory, please forward it to me (Donna@DonnaSchilder.com) or let me know what your dominant Learning Style is by counting up the number of yes answers you have in each column.
