Blind spots are obvious to others but many times oblivious to us
Recently while jogging on a trail in the woods, I encountered a squirrel who stood very still as I passed. The squirrel thought it was invisible. It wasn’t. Your blind spots are the same way. If you do perceive that something is not right, you still try to “act” like everything is fine and “hope” no one notices. Inside you know that something is not right, but can’t identify the issue. Sometimes, you are oblivious that there is a problem at all. You can’t see it because it is “blind” to you, but unfortunately not to everyone else.
The first BIG thing is to identify your blind spots. You are probably thinking, “If I’m blind to them how do I identify them?”. Great question.
In her book, Fearless Leadership, Loretta Malandro, PhD., identified 10 behavioral blind spots that can derail leaders.
These 10 blind spots are:
- Going it alone
- Being insensitive to how your behavior impacts others
- Having an “I know” attitude
- Avoiding the difficult conversations
- Blaming others or circumstances
- Treating commitments casually
- Conspiring against others
- Withholding emotional commitment
- Not taking a stand
- Tolerating “good enough”
