Here is your SOLID One-Minute Coaching, designed to improve your executive performance in 60 seconds or less: 

There is no such thing as a perfect executive. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. But when these strengths and weaknesses hide in “blind spots,” they can sabotage performance.

You can eliminate blind spots in any number of ways. Here are a few:

  1. Getting feedback from others.
  2. Introspection.
  3. Reviewing previously completed tests and assessments.
  4. Completing new tests and assessments (for example, DiSC, Myers-Briggs, Birkman, CliftonStrengths, Emotional Intelligence, and others).
  5. Completing qualitative (interview-based) or quantitative (electronic survey–based 360°) executive assessments.

We all have blind spots: areas where we have a lack of insight and clarity. However, the best executives have taken great lengths to eliminate their blind spots.

What else can you do to gain better insight into yourself? How can you discover your blind spots? Please let me know what you come up with. Remember, the best executive is not the one who is perfect. That creature doesn’t exist. The best executive is the one who has done all he or she can to eliminate their blind spots.
