Discovery Learning Inc.’s expertise in executive and organisational development have brought about a portfolio of world class resources in the areas of leadership development and change management.

Influence Style Indicator Measures an individual’s preferred style as they influence others.
Today's workplace requires effective leaders to work across multiple boundaries where differences such as geography, culture, gender, age, and hierarchy can all present unique challenges. This tool is an individual assessment which identifies a dominant influencing style and assists in the development of skills to increase leadership effectiveness.

  • Determine best opportunities to flex their style to address a variety of situations
  • Improve their ability to connect with others using a variety of influencing styles
  • Investigate how timing and discretion are important considerations in influencing
