It is one of the largest organizations, complex in operations, having multiple objectives to attain. In the last three decades it is experiencing an on-going complex process of change due to political, economical, social and ethical reasons. Literature search found that no similar researches were completed before. This presumption was subsequently endorsed by those academics involved when consulted It is evident that previous researches have taken diversity from the two main concepts: managerial meta-qualities and learning style preferences since. Popular instruments were used to check the manager profiles, the metaqualities profile and the Learning style preferences profile. The hypothesis tested the relationships between the two key variables, and its significance. The null hypothesis suggests that there exist no relationships. Further, this research contributes knowledge on certain facts where there are necessities for further examination in the future. From the strength of the data it was concluded that having evidence for relationships in two combinations of the sub variables: Mental-agilityReflector and Self-knowledge-Theorist. No relationship found between the two key variables in its consolidated profile state. The observed relationships were quite significant for the high score group compared to that of low score group. Research results also used to predict a balanced learner profile using the pertinent learning style preferences profile. Finally it recommends further imminent researches in this area, certainly with larger sample base.
