The Seven Influence Traits™: 

What are they and how are they developed 


In the final part of our 3 part series we discover how you can become a more influential leader and/or help to develop the leaders around you. This week we took a look at EMPOWERING, TRUSTWORTHINESS & LIKABILITY. Click here to watch the conversation!

EMPOWERING is your ability to support peers and share knowledge with them. It also includes how you reward people who make a contribution. See Infographic

TRUSTWORTHINESS is a high virtue, and is fairly self-explanatory. It is worth noting though that of all the influence traits, this is usually the most crucial. Lose trust, and you instantly lose influence. See Infographic

LIKABILITY is more than being friendly. It’s your capacity to create positive attitudes in the people around you, and focus those attitudes towards a common goal. See Infographic



NOTE: We are in the process of designing the KII™ Certification Program (which is required to become a KII™ Partner) so for a limited time, we are offering qualified candidates the opportunity to become a Charter KII™ Partner by submitting an application. If you are interested in not delaying your ability to use the Keller Influence Indicator® in your business, then this is the quickest way for you to earn Certified KII™ status and begin your KII™ Partnership.
