  • Adrian Lowthers Assessment 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:Dealing with TroubleOne of the most difficult aspects of leadership is challenging the status quo, dealing withdilemmas, and handling conflict with others. Leaders that fail to do this effectively risk adivided team, a resentful staff, and a culture of mistrust. • Take the long view – Giving negative feedback is uncomfortable in the moment, but withholding such feedback can be a disservice in the long-term. Honest feedback opens lines of communication and opens the door for development and improvement over time. • Commit to transparency – Everyone should be held to the same standards of behavior, and processes for receiving feedback and addressing problems should be uniform across the team. Make sure everyone is clear on what the standards and practices are and try to keep rules consistent over time. • Build trust – Consistency, honesty, and respect are essential ingredients to building trust. Feedback should be given consistently, in private, and whenever possible, in person. Remove anger and generalizations from your message (i.e., “always,” “never”). Point out specific behaviors that need changing and collaborate on a shared plan for improvement.Korn/Ferry’s Leadership Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their careerdevelopment.
