Discussions of personal influence in organizations and communities are ordinarily abstract and theoretical.In this paper, a practical method for the measurement of influence in interactional terms. The approach combines the use of Likert scales, sociometry and a simplified version of block modeling using matrices. The approach is illustrated with a hypothetical human service agency with a staff of seven professionals.
