This study was conducted to compare the learning styles and self-leadership between engineering college students with high and low team performance records. About 70% of students in high team performance group showed learning styles of converger and accommodator, whereas about 67% of students in low team performance group showed learning styles of accommodator and diverger. In regard to self-leadership, high team performance group showed higher level of self-leadership, especially self-observation, self-punishment, natural reward strategies, visualizing successful performance, self-talk, and evaluating beliefs and assumptions. It is recommended to provide the engineering students with the specialized training program to complement their learning styles and self-leadership strategies.
