Having Blinders On

If I asked you about your boss, or even your co-workers, I imagine you could go on and on about all the things they are doing wrong and all the ways in which they could and perhaps should improve themselves, right? It’s easy because we see it every day. We may even rant about it to friends and family. It’s so obvious to us.

Now let’s move the lens to face us. Do you know what you (and I) should be doing differently? Do you ever take a moment to reflect on how you’re being perceived or improvements you could be making? Unfortunately it’s a two way street, and it’s a rough street at that. We aren’t perfect either. 

There was a recent studied that revealed there was a 96% likelihood that leaders do not understand how they are perceived. In simple terms, what we think people think about us and what they actually think is NOT the same. Ouch! These are our blind spots and everyone has them. Blind Spots will be my first class in the Leadership Masterclass that starts on Tuesday November 15th. Sign up today, if you haven’t already. You’re not going to want to miss this call, but here’s a tip: We need feedback to resolve these blind spots, so ask your team, “What is one blind spot that I should be more aware of?” 

Let’s GO! WE GOT THIS!
