Blind spots are dangerous for leaders.
It might be that you think people are perceiving you in one way, but actually they think something else about you entirely.
Or perhaps you aren’t aware of your shortcomings, when other people can see them as plain as day.
Whatever the case, ideally we want to reduce our blind spots so we don’t run into unexpected trouble.
In this episode, I look at a useful model of self-awareness as well as some ways to try to reduce your blind spots, so you can lead better.
Apply For Your Complimentary Coaching Session
I invite you to a complimentary Discovery Coaching Session, where we will:
- Get clear on your most important goals and what is most important to you
- Identify blockers and limiting beliefs that are holding you back; and
- Develop key actions you can take to move forward and make progress.
You will leave the Discovery Coaching Session with a sense of clarity, purpose and practical steps to move you forward.
There is no obligation to pursue further coaching after this session - but many people do!
