To inspire their followers, leaders demonstrate confidence in their abilities and decisions while keeping an open mind, remaining willing to change their thinking and guarding against mental “blindspots” that lead them astray. This is challenging, because most people don’t know they even have blindspots. In this knowledgeable, useful manual, management consultant Robert Bruce Shaw explains leadership blindspots and their causes. He tells you how to find and manage your blindspots. The book’s appendix includes a useful “Leadership Blindspot Survey,” also available online. With thanks for that, plus Shaw’s helpful diagrams, charts, lists and feedback worksheet, getAbstract recommends his insightful diagnoses and practical prescriptions to leaders at every level.
In this summary, you will learn
- What “blindspots” are,
- What the main root causes are,
- How they manifest and
- How to deal with them.

Comment on this summary
1 year agoGreat starting point, but survey does not give much insights on your real blind spots (only self-assessment where YOU think your blind spot AREAS are).
