10 © Kiki Maurey Consultancy Limited Influencing Skills Style Profile (ISSP) by Manning & Robertson (2003). Dimensional model of influence – the four influencing styles OPPORTUNISTOPPORTUNIST Opportunistic-Collaborator  I anticipate where I may get stuck and consider ways to overcome any impasse  I consider how to establish a constructive climate at the outset  I give specific arguments to all questions even where difficult  I like to respond to a proposal with an immediate counter-proposal  At the end I consider it important to give summary of how I see the agreement  At the end I like to comment positively on what has been achieved Opportunistic-Battler  I leave things open-ended without identifying every possible issue  I focus on a single point for each issue  I favour arguments that appeal to either the “head” or the “heart”, not both  I think my personal style and behaviour has little impact on the outcomes of my negotiations  I like to respond to a proposal with an immediate counter- proposal  If negotiations fail I see little point in agreeing to meet again STRATEGISTSTRATEGIST Strategic Collaborator  I gather information from a wide network and variety of sources  I anticipate where I may get stuck and consider ways to overcome any impasse  I seek to agree a fixed agenda for dealing with issues at the outset  If persuaded by an argument, I reflect and take time before responding  I summarise at regular intervals throughout negotiations  At the end I like to comment positively on what has been achieved Strategic-Battler  I leave things open-ended without identifying every possible issue  I focus on a single point for each issue  I seek to agree a fixed agenda for dealing with issues at the outset  I think my personal style and behaviour has little impact on the outcomes of my negotiations  I summarise at regular intervals throughout negotiations  If negotiations fail I see little point in agreeing to meet again COLLABORATORBATTLER
