Description

Leadership Blindspots: How Successful Leaders Identify and Overcome the Weaknesses That Matter is a comprehensive guide to recognizing and acting on the weak points that can impair effectiveness, diminish results, and harm a career. Written by a 30-year veteran of the leadership consulting industry and author of Trust in the Balance, the audiobook contains examples, worksheets and surveys that illustrate the practical application of the advice presented. An online questionnaire helps listeners discover their own leadership vulnerabilities, and the audiobook provides a roadmap for creating a targeted plan to increase their awareness in the areas that truly matter.

The blindspot risk is that leaders fail to respond to weaknesses or threats due to a variety of factors including the complexity of their organizations, over-confidence in their own capabilities, and being surrounded by deferential subordinates. Leadership Blindspots provides a useful model for understanding how blindspots operate and why they persist. Topics include:

  • A framework to understand the threats posed by blindspots
  • Detailed case studies of blindspots in leaders across a variety of industries
  • A summary of the most common leadership blindspots
  • Corrective practices that help mitigate the risks that blindspots pose

The one characteristic great leaders share is the constant desire for self-improvement. Identifying and fixing crucial problems is the leader's job, and sometimes the most debilitating problems are with the leaders themselves. Leadership Blindspots: How Successful Leaders Identify and Overcome the Weaknesses That Matter is the first step toward owning and addressing one's vulnerabilities and, as a result, becoming a more effective leader.
