Just as every person prefers different learning styles and techniques, every company is going to have a dominant style or technique of solving problems and implementing new ideas. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to process information, but we can show you how to harness the individualized strengths of your employees to make your business more efficient.

Most people have a combination of personal learning styles with one style being more dominant. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances.

At Strategic Mentoring we can teach you to identify and develop your personnel’s ability. How well the people in your organization work together will drive your success. How well your people think together can be a real competitive advantage as it differentiates you from your competition.  It also enhances morale and builds camaraderie.

Answering these questions about your company will help you gain insight into where the strengths are as well as where there is potential for growth.


If you have a partner or a leadership team, do the assessment separately and then compare perceptions.

You will need a pencil, paper, and roughly 30 minutes to answer this assessment thoughtfully.
