Leadership characteristics are based on research by Lominger International, a Korn/Ferry company. ProSpective Assessment Naga Sridhar's Assessment Results These are your Top 5 Leadership Characteristics: Making Complex Decisions When you mull over a problem, you can fill pages with plus and minus columns, mind map sketches, lists of options, and various other notations. You gather enough data, but you don’t get too bogged down in it. You find the essence of a problem. You take into account all of the moving parts. When you look for patterns, you assess whether it’s something you’ve seen in your past experience. But you don’t get caught up with surface similarities. Subtle differences will lead you to take a new course of action—one that you haven’t tried in the past. Once you land on a decision, you are aware of the risk but confident that your approach has the best chance for success. Dealing with Trouble You are willing to stick your neck out. You have the courage to challenge the status quo and bring up ideas that may make others uncomfortable. People count on you to stand up, speak your mind respectfully, and not let others off the hook. It’s something they admire about you because they know it’s not easy to do. With you, people know where they stand. You do not hesitate to confront problem performers, deal with conflict, or deliver negative feedback. Your approach is productive, not threatening. And you are able to keep your own personal feelings in check. Challenge, conflict, and hardship do not deter you from leading. In fact, you are energized by tough challenges. Inspiring Others You have a compelling vision, and you are able to paint a picture of the future that ignites enthusiasm. You are able to translate your vision in a way that others begin to share the vision. You help individuals see how they fit into the bigger picture, and this leads to better engagement and stronger performance. You infuse others with a sense of optimism and Page 1 of 9 linkedin.kornferry.com

Korn/Ferry’s ProSpective Assessment is an online assessment tool created by Korn/Ferry International to assist LinkedIn users with their career development. Leadership characteristics are based on research by Lominger International, a Korn/Ferry company. ProSpective Assessment Naga Sridhar's Assessment Results Potential Blind Spots Blind spots are characteristics that you overestimate. You are likely to see yourself as stronger in these skills 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 your blind spots. Here are your potential blind spots and some ideas for next steps: Getting Organized Feeling overwhelmed by a large number of tasks can have the paradoxical effect of making it harder to get any one thing done. Being a skilled juggler requires careful planning, sequencing, and focused attention on the right things. Strategize – Set a long-term goal and work backwards from there. Break the goal into smaller pieces and schedule deadlines for each step along the way. This will keep you focused when other pressures vie for your attention. • Find resources – Get more done with less by calling upon all available resources. You might offer a piece of the project to someone as a development assignment or reallocate budget dollars to pay for an additional set of hands. Search for creative ways to increase your efficiency. • Manage your time – There are many resources available to help you become a better time manager. These include online courses, software, and professional organizing consultants. In the absence of these external learning tools, scheduling time for critical projects and holding yourself to those daily commitments is an excellent first step. • Relating Skills Relating Skills means more than just getting along with others. It also speaks to your ability to make the most of your interactions with people in any context. Building and maintaining strong connections with others is the name of the game.

Leadership characteristics are based on research by Lominger International, a Korn/Ferry company. ProSpective Assessment Naga Sridhar's Assessment Results Relating Skills: Blind Spots (Cont'd) Everything is a network – Don’t make the mistake of thinking the conference is for networking but the dog park isn’t. People who have large personal and professional networks connect to people wherever they go. You don’t have to be in “sell” mode; rather, set your dial to “curious” and find out about the people around you. • Invest – Just like plants need water and light, relationships need time and attention. But a little bit goes a long way—put some effort into remembering others’ names, follow up with a note after meeting someone for the first time, and reach out to those you haven’t seen in a while. • Pleasantry – Keeping yourself well dressed and well groomed, giving your full attention to someone when they’re speaking, using appropriate humor, sharing a kind word or compliment, breaking the ice, spending time finding common ground with someone you just met—these are all ways of communicating that you care. Be pleasant, warm, and friendly—these are at the heart of all healthy connections. • Page 4 of 9 linkedin.kornferry.com

ProSpective Assessment Naga Sridhar's Assessment Results Potential Hidden Strengths Hidden strengths are characteristics that you underestimate.

Your concentrated focus produces meaningful accomplishments. Acting with Honor and Character You know what you stand for. Your actions are rooted in a stable set of values. You can be counted on to act consistently and stay true to your word. Others trust you because your beliefs and actions match. People see you walking your talk. They sense your authenticity and your character. Page 5 of 9 linkedin.kornferry.com
