Our assessment is complementary to other industry-leading assessments, such as DISC and Predictive Index (PI).  DISC primarily assesses your communication style.  PI primarily assesses who you are as a person.

Our Office Influence (OI) assessment analyzes and facilitates the enhancement of the personal and business attributes needed to maximize your client’s influence, effectiveness and productivity in the workplace. These attributes are divided into the following five categories:

Internal Personal Attributes: Who you are as a person
External Personal Attributes: Your actions as observed by others
Professional Stature: Your credentials, achievements, knowledge and experience
Interpersonal Skills: Your ability to communicate with others
Business Skills: Your ability at activities, such as negotiation and teambuilding

The ability to influence other in the workplace is the tip of spear in all interpersonal business activities, including leadership, negotiation, change, sales, conflict resolution, delegation, and more. For example, negotiation is a highly interactive two-way type of influence. Sales is influencing customers to buy your products and services. The list goes on and on.
