  • ProSpective Assessment Rui Serapicoss 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.Korn/Ferry’s ProSpective Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their careerdevelopment.

  • ProSpective Assessment Rui Serapicoss Assessment ResultsPotential Hidden StrengthsHidden strengths are characteristics that you underestimate.

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.
