i just spoke to the great folks at Philanthropy Southwest at their annual conference. I shared my takeaways from Margaret Heffernan’s essential book Willful Blindness: Why We Ignore the Obvious at our Peril.
In talking to folks after the session, I realized an important question for all of us – for leadership teams, for board members… and for all of us individually.
The question: Where are Your Blind Spots?
You do have some, you know. I know that I have some. And the problem partly is we are blind to the things we are blind to…
So, becoming aware of our blind spots is a critical pursuit.
