Leadership blindspots and how to avoid them

Blindspots.

In cars, we have blindspots where we can’t see what is going on right around us.  The larger those blindspots are, the more dangerous.  We can have blindspots in our life as well – things and behaviors that we do that we don’t understand or appreciate the impact that they have on others and in ourselves.

In her book, Fearless Leadership, Loretta Malandro, PhD., identifies  10 behavioral blindspots that can derail leaders.  The following slideshare builds off of those 10 blindspots and helps to figure out ways to get past them and become fearless leaders.

4-Drives I found this summary of Lawrence and Nohria’s “Drive” and thought that it was a nice summation of the book.   Josh Kaufmann does a nice job of laying out the key insights to the theory and some good ideas on how to apply the theory into the real business world.  I really like the final comment by Kaufmann regarding adding a drive around “feel.”  It is an interesting concept that I’m going to explore in more detail.
