Influencing Skills Quick Quiz

Please select all options.

Are you a confident influencer in your workplace, or do you feel limited by your role or by your personality?

Imagine that you’re in charge of a marketing team that specializes in creating high-quality print materials. Now, there are compelling business reasons for introducing social media to the mix. All the research data available to you suggests that this will lead to more exposure and create business opportunities in previously untapped markets.

However, you’re unable to persuade your people that the change is a positive one. Some are resistant, while others only accept begrudgingly. Their motivation appears to be at an all-time low, so you know that just asserting your authority isn’t the answer. You’re in damage-control mode.

This is your opportunity to learn some new influencing styles and to keep your team onside. Take this quiz to help you identify your strengths. Then, use our feedback to develop a range of approaches to use in different situations with different people.
