All leaders have blind spots.
We can’t see what we can’t see.
That’s not an indictment; it’s a reality. It’s part of being human.
I depend on close insiders to advise me, coach me, and tell me the truth. Without that, I’m nearly guaranteed to do most things the hard way. I’ll make and repeat avoidable mistakes, miss opportunities, and possibly – unknowingly hurt relationships. When I make myself accountable to a team, not only am I better, the whole team is better.
