  3. 3. ProSpective Assessment Max Salas Hidalgos 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: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, 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.Inspiring OthersIf the act of inspiring others doesn’t seem to come naturally to you, you’re in very goodcompany. This is one of the toughest skills for leaders to acquire, and most spend their livestrying to improve on their ability to keep people motivated and engaged through good timesKorn/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 Max Salas Hidalgos Assessment ResultsInspiring Others: Blind Spots (Contd)and bad. • Offer a clear vision – If you can’t describe your vision in five sentences or less, then it still needs honing. A clear, cohesive vision should be immediately understandable to others and should be repeated and reinforced continuously. And no vision resonates more deeply with people than one they helped to create. • Empower others – Empowerment is not simple delegation, but rather a process of inviting others into the most interesting, challenging aspects of the job—tough decision making, compromise, debate, and continuous improvement. Invite others to be co-owners of the goal, the risk, the work, and the win. • Adjust – Not everyone will be motivated by the same thing. Get to know people and what they care about. Find the angle that will appeal to their needs and interests.Korn/Ferry’s ProSpective Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their careerdevelopment.

  5. 5. ProSpective Assessment Max Salas Hidalgos Assessment ResultsPotential Hidden StrengthsHidden strengths are characteristics that you underestimate. You are likely to see yourself as weaker in theseskills than others see you. A self assessment can give you insight on potential areas for self improvement,however, asking others for their input by doing a network assessment will give you far greater insight on yourhidden strengths. Here are your potential hidden strengths:Managing UpYou relate well with higher management. You manage your career well. You know what youwant in your career. You are proactive in positioning yourself—your career aspirations andinterests—to leaders who will influence your career trajectory. You do not hesitate to takeadvantage of opportunities that showcase your skills to higher management. This requiresconfidence, but gaining the support of your boss and senior leaders makes the risk worth it toyou.Being Organizationally SavvyYou see the complexity of an organization—its policies, politics, people. You see navigatingthe political maze as a necessary means to get results. You know whom to go to for whatpurpose, how to usher a project through a myriad of stakeholders, and which messages orarguments will influence key decision makers. You are up to speed on titles as well aspersonalities and relationships. You gracefully navigate a tangled, high-stakes web of egos,agendas, changing priorities, and sometimes outrageous demands. You leverage yourunderstanding of the organizational landscape to adjust your approach for the best outcome.Korn/Ferry’s ProSpective Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their careerdevelopment.

It is the foundation upon which all other leadership skills are built. Mostpeople are highly skilled in Acting with Honor and Character. It is moderately difficult todevelop. Being trustworthy, consistent, and ethical are viewed by most employers as price-of-admission leadership qualities.Focusing on the Bottom LineFocusing on the Bottom Line is critically important. It is highly correlated with performance andpromotion at the individual contributor and manager levels. Most people tend to be good atthis, partially because organizations clearly communicate their desire for people who getresults, and it’s easy to identify and measure this skill in others. Focusing on the Bottom Lineis a non-negotiable for anyone who wants to succeed at work.Communicating EffectivelyCommunicating Effectively is particularly important at the individual contributor level. Thenumber of people who are good communicators tends to be lower at the individual contributorlevel but steadily increases among managers and executives. With a little effort, this skill is nothard to develop. The ability to tailor your delivery and clearly articulate your points buildscredibility for both you and your message.Managing Work ProcessesManaging Work Processes is highly correlated with strong performance at the manager level.Korn/Ferry’s ProSpective Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their careerdevelopment.

  8. 8. ProSpective Assessment Max Salas Hidalgos Assessment ResultsManaging Work Processes: Korn/Ferry Insights (Contd)Managers are often responsible for seeing the big picture and understanding how the piecesinterrelate. Most people are low in this skill, and it is moderately difficult to develop. The abilityto see a process as a dynamic system and to understand how tweaks create ripple effects is avital contribution to a business and will differentiate you from other leaders.Creating the New and DifferentCreating the New and Different is correlated with strong performance at the manager andexecutive levels. Most people’s skill level in Creating the New and Different is low, and it isharder to develop than most leadership skills. For these reasons, it is a good idea to focus ondeveloping this skill as early as possible in your career. Your ability to generate breakthroughswill be noticed, appreciated, and sought after because it is the source of competitiveadvantage that companies seek.Managing UpManaging Up is a strong skill for most people across all leadership levels. However, it may notbe surprising that the skill improves as leaders move up to the manager and executive levels.Many people are not aware of their ability to manage up—it is one of the most common hiddenstrengths for individual contributors, managers, and executives. Your ability to garner supportfrom senior leaders gives you the opportunity to position your ideas and influence your careertrajectory.Being Organizationally SavvyBeing Organizationally Savvy is moderately important across all leadership levels. It is a rareskill at the individual contributor level, but leaders steadily improve as they rise to the managerand executive levels.

ProSpective Assessment Max Salas Hidalgos Assessment ResultsBeing Organizationally Savvy: Korn/Ferry Insights (Contd)things done can mean the difference between stalled initiatives and moving things forward.Getting Work Done Through OthersGetting Work Done Through Others is important, particularly at the manager and executivelevels. However, it is an extremely rare skill. For most leaders, this is their lowest-rankedleadership skill, and it is one of the most common blind spots at the executive level. GettingWork Done Through Others is easier to develop, in part, because organizations providecourses, coaching, and other resources to help leaders improve. It is difficult to give up doingthe work yourself, but your ability to direct, coach, delegate, and develop can mean thedifference between lackluster and stellar results.Inspiring OthersInspiring Others is very important at the manager and executive levels. It is highly correlatedwith strong performance at the executive level. However, very few people are skilled in thisarea. One of the reasons few people have this skill is that it’s difficult to learn. Rallying peoplearound a common vision and motivating them to embrace change and give their best willdifferentiate you and your organization. It is a good idea to start developing your ability toinspire others at the manager level because it can be a critical asset for you as you move upthe leadership ladder.Korn/Ferry’s ProSpective Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their careerdevelopment.
