This blind spot is recognizing how to shift between managing tasks and stepping outside of the details to lead the team. This idea is beautifully described by Heifetz and Linsky in their book, Leadership on the Line.

I received lots of feedback from my TV Interview last month - wanting more information about leader blind spots, so I'll focus on each in the next few blog posts.

Leader blind spots are those unproductive behaviors that are frequently invisible to the leader, but quite visible to their teams, bosses, and peers.  Much like the blind spots we experience when driving, the things we don’t see can get us into the most trouble, and none of us are immune to blind spots.

I had a great opportunity yesterday to appear on one of our local TV stations to talk about the leader blind spots I help my clients work through, and my book Simple Shifts.   

"Simple Shifts" is (really) now available

I’m so sorry about all the delay through Amazon to order and receive my book, Simple Shifts:  Effective Leadership Changes Everything.  They are now re-stocked and able to ship the books.

I hope you find the book practical and useful.  My intent is for this book to help leaders discover their real opportunities to achieve measurable success in their work and personal lives through real client stories, tools and exercises.   It’s about recognizing how small changes in behavior can create huge positive results, and how to build a practical path to change.
