How the KII™ Benefits the MBA Professor

An MBA professor needs to balance three things; the needs of the student, the needs of the school, and the needs of the community. Each of these needs are components in an ever-changing world where students are expected to bring forth their best leadership skills and business strategies – and it is the responsibility of the professor to move the student to a space where he or she can explore, expand and practice the necessary mindsets and behaviors that make this happen.

Yes, no easy task… 

However, the MBA professor who uses the KII™ in their course in total or as supplemental material, is ahead of the game! From preparing the student in developing communication mastery to helping him or her gain the practical skills for global management or leadership, the MBA professor can use the KII™ to: 

  • Conduct enlightened conversations.
  • Design a core curriculum that encompasses influence.
  • Address fundamental influence skills necessary for all endeavors.
  • Increase the student’s self-awareness and continued learning.
  • Introduce new concepts and approaches to business & leadership.

You can turn real-time data into knowledge – for each student. 

The next generation needs top quality leadership, highly engaged communicators, future-thinking innovators and ethical entrepreneurs who will dedicate their best in their companies and their communities.  

The KII™ is a proven advantage, having been piloted at the graduate College of Business and Behavioral Science at Clemson University.

In crafting the syllabus for my MBA Business Communications course, influence was an important element in the course. I was unsure as to the best way to teach/discuss the subject. Dr. Keller's Influence Assessment was a terrific instrument to make the topic of influence more relevant, clear, and important to my students. She took the time to video conference into my class to explain the assessment tool and research behind the assessment. Her knowledge and passion for the topic of influence added a very credible and important element to my class.

How does the MBA Professor use the KII™?

Once you decide to use the KII™ the process is simple, user-friendly and very effective. Every professor receives their full KII™ and SOCR™ Reports for free. They can choose to upload their classroom roster in one of two ways; manually or automated. Once this is complete each student will receive an email (generated by KKI) indicating they can complete their KII™ once they access their account (generated by KKI). 

Next, you will have administrative access to valuable aggregate data for their specific classroom and/or course to see who has completed the KII™, average scores, score ranges, etc. NOTE: No identifying information is made available to the professor or the institution. All individual student information is kept confidential.
