Which Blind Spot do you claim? You say none of them? Sorry….that’s why it’s called a Blind Spot! You don’t see it but I imagine if we question the people you see regularly they would have a different answer!
Blind Spots will sabotage your leadership skills. They will hurt your team’s performance. They will challenge your relationships. They will undermine your respect. The sad thing is we don’t even realize it’s happening.
The topic of Blind Spots usually leads to a huge discussion in team workshops where I emphasize understanding and accepting each other’s differences. The goal is to make the team stronger by utilizing the strengths, talents and abilities that are the make up of each person’s unique DISC blend. Each unique DISC Personality Style comes with a Blind Spot also. As we discuss Blind Spots it’s common for people to be horrified and embarrassed when they see how their Blind Spot may have affected the performance of the team or even worse, affected a relationship with another team member.
Without fail, the general consensus among team members is they had no clue they even had a Blind Spot. Through the discussion they learn to recognize when their Blind Spot may appear. We then role play how to best diffuse the situation so the team can move forward to success in a strong, united manner.
