It’s no secret that LinkedIn is developing more Recruitment and Talent Management solutions to strenghten their portfolio in this important, revenue making, market. One company that’s making use of this is Korn/Ferry, who developed a leadership assessment tool which is now available if you have a LinkedIn profile. You can take a free assessment and discover your Top 5 Leadership Characteristics in about 10 minutes in 3 easy steps:

  1. Strength Sort (takes about 5 minutes)
  2. Weakness Sort (takes about 3 minutes)
  3. Word Pairs (takes about 2 minutes)

The result is a summary and 12-page report of your 5 strongest Leadership Characteristics, blind spots (characteristics that you overestimate), Hidden strengths (characteristics that you underestimate) and potential problem areas.

But… why do you need to link a LinkedIn profile to conduct this assessment? It doesn’t seems to use any of the LinkedIn data on my profile? It’s a mistery to me what’s happening with this data and that’s a missed opportunity.
