  3. 3. ProSpective Assessment Nuno Tasso de Figueiredos Network ResultsBlind SpotsBlind spots are characteristics that you overestimate. You are likely to see yourself as stronger in these skills thanothers see you. Here are your potential blind spots and some ideas for next steps:Creating the New and DifferentMoving into more demanding roles often requires a shift in the way you approach work.Efficiency, perfectionism, and focus can begin to work against you, particularly in roles thatrequire creative thinking in ambiguous situations, or that call for strategic and innovativemethods of bringing ideas to market. • Slow down – Seeing patterns and trends in diverse data takes time. Brainstorming, exploration, and collaboration will help bring a complex picture into focus. • Integrate – Data from unusual sources can spark new ideas and perspectives. This might include tapping people from outside your team or function, or identifying analogies that tie your efforts to other models or new ways of understanding the problem. • Take the long view – Sometimes a short-term loss hides a long-term gain. Stepping out of the weeds, looking at the big picture, and taking calculated risks in the service of a long- term vision are important components of innovation.Getting Work Done Through OthersOne of the most difficult transitions people face as they move up the ladder is transformingtheir approach to managing others. Direct step-by-step instruction and discipline gives way torelationship building, empowerment, advocacy, and coaching. • Empower – Taking a command-and-control approach to leadership has its advantages, but it also involves a lot of extra stress and expended energy. Delegating work is one of the best ways to develop and empower others. Add some coaching and support to the mix,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 Nuno Tasso de Figueiredos Network ResultsGetting Work Done Through Others: Network Blind Spots (Contd) and you have a recipe for bringing out the best in people. • Eliminate barriers – Part of your job as a leader is to make sure your team has what it needs (resources, time, support, information) to get their jobs done efficiently. Listen to feedback from your team about where the system bogs down and use your influence and advocacy to clear their path. • Spend your time wisely – It is tempting to continue to do the work that you love—the work that got you promoted. But once you manage other people, your job responsibilities shift. Spend less time on tasks you have mastered and more time on tasks that only you can do.Balancing Work/LifeDoes your boss care if you have a life outside the office? Probably not. But most bosses knowthat a happy employee is an employee who spends time with friends, writes an occasionallimerick, and reads stories to his or her kids. • Just say no – You are the only one on earth who can push back on work when its time to eat a healthy lunch, exercise, attend your child’s recital, or have a relaxed dinner with your partner. In the long run, forgoing these things will likely decrease, not increase, your overall productivity. • Reset your standards – If you’re striving for perfection at work and at home, you’re in for a tough ride. Take a cue from the world’s most productive, successful people and give yourself room to be pretty darn good most of the time. This means you’ll get almost everything done by the end of the day and still have time for a quick round of Ping-Pong®. • Team up – Try teaming up with coworkers to create a backup system. Everyone needs to take a day off, sometimes unexpectedly. Serving as backup for one another can take the pressure off when you really need a break.Korn/Ferry’s ProSpective Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their careerdevelopment.
