What type of adviser are you?
Being a strategic adviser comes in many forms. In our work in analysing great advisory relationships, we’ve identified five main approaches, which we have linked together via the analogy of a restaurant. The five approaches are listed on the right and you can read more about them in our blog, here: https://corporatesnakes.org/2019/05/07/strategic-advisers-five-perspectives/

We know great advice happens when three things are aligned: the natural style of the adviser, what the recipient wants, and what the project requires.

This questionnaire will help you explore your own advisory style. Once you have completed it, we will send you a personalised feedback report within five days. For registered players in our #testingtimes Postcard game, the report is free. If you are not registered, email me and we'll talk options.

There are 30 questions in total. The survey should take you about 10-12 minutes to complete. Please note that the word 'client' in this context means any leader you are advising, whether an external client or an internal colleague.
