Welcome to Power and Influence Online's Power Sources Self-Assessment.  This instrument measures your strength in eleven sources of personal and organizational power.  Power is the engine that drives influence.  If you want to be influential, you must have some strong sources of power.

The eleven power sources measured in this assessment are described on this website and are explained more fully in The Elements of Power and its companion book Elements of Influence.  You may also be interested in the Influence Effectiveness Self-Assessment offered on this website or in the comprehensive Power and Influence Assessment, which includes an in-depth feedback report and tailored recommendations for improving your ability to build your sources of power and lead and influence others more effectively.

Before responding to the statements in this survey, you will be asked to provide some demographic information about yourself.  This information is for research purposes only and is not used in any other manner.  Please help us develop a better understanding of how people influence one another by responding to these questions.  This self-assessment is brief and should take no more than ten minutes to complete.
