  3. 3. ProSpective Assessment Edmundo Escobars 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:Being Organizationally SavvyOrganizations are essentially groups of people organized around a common goal. Thus,successfully navigating organizations requires a high level of social attunement.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.Communicating EffectivelyWhen everyone around you is bombarded with information, how do you get your messageacross? Start by calling to mind those people who get your attention.

  4. 4. ProSpective Assessment Edmundo Escobars Assessment ResultsCommunicating Effectively: Blind Spots (Contd)skilled communicators. It is also likely that they draw from these essential strategies: • Keep it simple – Pulling the salient points from a jumble of information, using an analogy to bring to life a complex issue, or using images and stories to illustrate a point are all examples of simplifying to increase the impact of a message. Brevity is much more difficult than long explanations, and much more powerful. • Take care – Technology has given us a million ways to communicate and even more ways to goof up communication. Respect the medium you’re using and use good sense when deciding what you write down and where. Pay attention to etiquette, be mindful of your audience, and know when it’s time to communicate in person. • Listening is communication – Quieting the thoughts in your head, turning away from the handheld, and giving your full attention to another person is a very powerful way of communicating respect, conscientiousness, and interest. People who say less and listen more are actually very skilled communicators and are able to command the attention of others when they do speak.Korn/Ferry’s ProSpective Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their careerdevelopment.
