Checking In With Your Team
I think most leaders' blind spot relates to their passion to make something happen. It can lead them to not be fully aware of the gaps where they might be missing something and most importantly where others might be. The blind spot lies in failing to routinely and systematically check in with others. What are you up against? What do you see? What do you care about?
So the blind spot relates to where others might be with respect to the division or the mission of the organization. Leaders are so passionate about what they’re trying to do that it’s easy to fail to check in and see what others are really hearing, what others really are up against and what they care about.
