Influence Style Indicator
About the Influence Style Indicator
The Influence Style Indicator (ISI) defines influence as “the interpersonal behaviours that we use to have a positive impact on another party’s choices.”
Using this definition, the Influence Style Indicator measures an individual’s preferred styles as they influence others. The assessment assesses the respondent’s dominant and under-utilised influencing styles, also how to identify others’ preferred styles.
Asserting: You advocate by debate, insisting your ideas are heard and challenging the ideas of others
Inspiring: You advocate by presenting a sense of shared purpose and exciting possibilities
Bridging: You advocate by connecting, building relationships and coalitions
Negotiating: You advocate through comparisons, concessions and trade-offs to reach outcomes that satisfy your greater interest
Rationalising: You advocate by offering logic, rational reasons and data
