Review Your Mistakes While writing this book, I took a five-day backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Hiking for eight hours a day, I had ample opportunity to consider a range of topics, including my own blindspots (as much as I wished otherwise). In particular, I focused on the mistakes I have made over my career. I took the approach that mistakes are the royal road to understanding blindspots, particularly when repeated over time and in different situations. Mistakes often point to areas in which we lack selfawareness of a weakness or threat, including patterns in our thinking and behavior that get us into trouble.
I worked, for instance, with a business leader who rose through the sales and marketing functions of his company. In these roles, he learned how to engage others during sales meetings and conferences, as well as on sales calls to senior-level customers. As a result of his personal charisma and years spent refining his communication skills, he became the best public speaker in his company. He knows this is a unique strength and leverages it fully in communicating his firm’s strategies and initiatives to groups inside and outside of his firm.
The senior leader took the feedback and then met with each of the division leaders and reviewed the findings. In a private session, he was direct with the leader whose group was the most negative and indicated that they needed to be more open and transparent in working together. The leader of that division left the meeting feeling that he had been singled out by the leader and his group had been “thrown under the bus” by me. He then went to great lengths to portray me to his peers as untrustworthy and someone with whom others should not work.
