What is human agency?
Agency is the ability to act as an effective agent for yourself - getting your mind, body, and emotions in balance to think clearly, advocate for yourself, and make choices that create a successful and meaningful life.
The link below allows you to take the Agency Practices Inventory, a brief assessment of your level of agency enhancing behaviors. The API provides feedback on the seven principles of agency that successful people use to be more focused, make better decisions, and achieve their goals. This is a fun exercise with no right or wrong answers. You can't fail! We all have the potential for greater agency, but the pace of life is so fast today that we often lose sight of what matters most. When people learn to utilize these principles in their lives, they experience a higher level of agency and report feeling more confident. They also report less anxiety and feel more in charge of their lives.
We suggest you take the assessment the test by October 7th, so the authors can pool our results and can share aggregated results at our PTSO meeting on October 10th. Note that the survey is anonymous, and no individual results will be shared with the group.
If you have any questions about the test, please contact Dr. Anthony Rao at (email@example.com).
