How do You Start Becoming a More Influential Person?


The KII® (“kay-two”) is the FIRST and ONLY research-based assessment of Influence Potential.

Piloted at Clemson University, the KII® provides and accurate benchmark of your aptitudes on the Seven Influence Traits®; each of which are needed to increase your influence. You’ll learn which of these traits are strengths and which need improvement.

The KII® is the world’s only scientifically validated assessment that accurately measures your potential to be influential.

The Keller Influence Indicator® delivers a unique, customized KII® Report that:

  • Explains your K-Factor® score.
  • Defines each trait clearly and reveals how it is currently impacting your influence.
  • Shows your K-Factor® score and each influence trait score in relation to the general population with easy to read graphs.
  • Shows strengths--what you are already doing right.
  • Reveals the blind spots keeping you from reaching your full potential.
  • Suggests growth actions you can make within each trait
  • Teaches you how each trait can be applied at home, at work and in your community.

The KII® dynamically measures your ever-changing scores on each of the Seven Influence Traits®. This allows you to accurately track your influence development over time
