You founded your business.
It was your idea, your passion, your zone of genius that created it.
And that’s something you can be proud of.
Whatever drove you in the beginning – the quality of service, culture, people – you nailed it.
And so did everyone you bought into the business because that’s what you focused on the most.
But what about your blind spots?
How have they impacted your business as it’s grown?
Perhaps you’ve been too busy to notice?
But blind spots need focus.
You need to turn your head in your car to find it. You also need to make a conscious decision to do so in your business.
It can feel uncomfortable.
But without doing it, you could be in for a collision ahead.
In 2004, Merryck & Co and the Barrett Values Centre in England looked at the biggest blind spots for leaders.
Here’s what they found:
- Troubles with visibility & accessibility
- Development of teams and upcoming leaders
- Vision, strategy and organisational priorities
They stated there’s a 96% likelihood that leaders do not understand that their organisation perceives them as ivory-tower executives who do not provide adequate clarity on the company’s strategy.
Although not a big business, our client had a team of 14 staff, with most of them coming onboard in the last twelve months due to rapid (and reactive) business growth.
When we completed her 30-day Business Health Check, we delivered the good, the bad and the ugly in her roadmap unpack session.
And what she saw stood out like a beacon.
All the reds in the traffic light report were a reflection of her blind spots.
No surprises there, yet it was feedback she needed to hear.
On the flip side, the strengths of the business were a reflection of her strengths as well.
This was already in her circle of awareness because that’s where she focused her time.
What we helped her do is move the unknown unknowns (her blind spots) to known unknowns.
And now she had a roadmap of exactly where to focus her energy to move her business forward.
Perhaps it’s time for you to check your blind spots?
