Our pre-class survey and our post-class assessments analyze 53 of your students’ personal and business attributes.  This will also provide you insights on ways to maximize class participation, student engagement and overall class value!

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

As an trainer in the corporate space, independent or employed, our survey, assessment and 360 online tools, combined with our training materials, provides you the information needed to simultaneously:

  • Expand your student’s influence in the workplace
  • Enhance their current job performance
  • Accelerate their professional success

The ability to influence others 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.

Based on Eric Bloom’s book “Office Influence: Get What You Want from the Mailroom to the Boardroom” and a survey done in cooperation with the University of Northern Colorado, Our founder, Eric Bloom, identified 53 personal and business attributes that positively or negatively affect people’s ability to influence others in the workplace. The research is at the heart of our survey, assessment and 360 capabilities.

These tools and materials, designed to provide a multi-media experience, provide the following value:

For the trainer: A systematic way to identify and prioritize the topics that are most important to the students, thus, enhancing class relevance, increasing class participation and maximizing student value.  These class attributes also have the result of maximizing student/instructor evaluations.

For those being training: The survey/assessment/classroom combination provides a form of individualized training within a group environment, allowing the students to not only learn the materials, but also the opportunity to learn more about themselves.

The students’ newfound ability to influence others in the workplace, is effective in all organizations, from the mailroom to the boardroom, including working with investors, board members, peers, staff, business partners, vendors, key clients/customers and others.
