The Blind Spot that Could Have Derailed My Career

by | Nov 11, 2021 | Blind Spots, Feedback, Insights

You know why automakers put sensors in lots of places on cars these days? Because they know that, try as we might, we simply cannot see everything we need to see in order to maneuver safely. This little innovation has been credited with dramatically reducing car crashes and related injuries in recent years. As one Forbes Advisor writer asked: “Do you need a car with an advanced safety system? I didn’t think I did—until I did.”

 

It’s much the same with our personal blind spots, especially if you happen to be a leader. Like it or not, we all have them. And most of the time, we won’t hear about them from our co-workers. You may think your team tells you everything you want to know. Having been both the team member and the team leader in my career, I can tell you: That is rarely true.

 

Whether you’re looking to advance or have recently stepped into a new role, there comes a point where you’ve gotten as far as you can on your own. You need an outside perspective to shine light on potential blind spots so you can get to — and stay —  at the top of your game.

 

As your professional spotter (aka your executive coach), I will help you eliminate those blind spots so you can create new opportunities and maximize the ones you’ve already earned.
