  3. 3. ProSpective Assessment Simon Coulters Assessment ResultsPotential Blind SpotsBlind spots are characteristics that you overestimate. You are likely to see yourself as stronger in these skills thanothers see you. A self assessment can give you insight on potential areas for self improvement, however, askingothers for their input by doing a network assessment will give you far greater insight on your blind spots. Here areyour potential blind spots and some ideas for next steps:Demonstrating Personal FlexibilityClearly, our world is in constant flux. And as the pace of change accelerates on all of us,organizations have become keenly aware of their need for people who can tuck and roll andkeep their balance in a context of continuous change. • Keep learning – Getting better and better at something you’re already good at does not grow you as fast as pushing past your comfort zone and entering unfamiliar terrain. Seek out classes, opportunities to cross-team, or even lateral moves that will allow you to exercise new muscles and break up your routine. • Start again, and again – Resilience used to be a term used mostly in psychology and sports, but it’s creeping into the business lexicon. It refers to one’s ability to bounce back from setbacks, losses, or simple failure. Your grace in the face of such challenges and your ability to get back on the horse will communicate your resilience. • Think solutions – Where there’s a problem, there’s always a solution (or at least a brave attempt at one). Identifying problems is an important part of any job, but looking deep into the heart of a problem and coming up with a recommended course of action is what separates the truly nimble from the rest of us.Being Organizationally SavvyOrganizations are essentially groups of people organized around a common goal. Thus,successfully navigating organizations requires a high level of social attunement.Korn/Ferry’s ProSpective Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their careerdevelopment.

  4. 4. ProSpective Assessment Simon Coulters Assessment ResultsBeing Organizationally Savvy: Blind Spots (Contd)Understanding how to align with and influence others, form strong networks, and listen activelyto those around you are essential first steps toward finding your feet in your organization. • Build alliances – Your mission: Find commonalities with a wide range of people within your organization. Sincerity, respect, and active listening will go a long way toward building relationships and learning about the organization through others’ perspectives and experiences. • Know your advocates – Find the key people in the organization who will work with you to usher your projects through the maze of governance bodies and approvals. These are the people who will take a vested interest in your success. • Unwritten signs – Knowing people’s titles and reporting relationships is not the complete picture. An organization has a formal structure and an informal structure. Many times, there are people who have power and respect without the title and they are able to influence. Read the unwritten title on people’s nameplates.Korn/Ferry’s ProSpective Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their careerdevelopment.
