Today, leaders have many stakeholders in their learning – the livelihoods of thousands of people may depend on the quality of their leaders’ decisions. The challenge facing these leaders is how to make the right decisions in conditions of complexity, uncertainty and rapid change.

Based on in-depth research, this book shows how and why we develop blind spots that impede our ability to adapt and learn in complex, uncertain environments. Karen Blakeley offers radical new insights into how leaders learn on-the-job taking into account the emotional as well as rational challenges this type of learning presents. She helps leaders identify the subtle pressures that make it particularly difficult to keep on learning once they move into a leadership role – with potentially serious implications. In today’s complex, changing environments, it is vital that leaders increase their learning agility in order to be able to perform at the highest possible levels.

There are eight practices that leaders can implement to help them enhance their in-role learning and decision making:

* Direct attention
* Harness emotions
* Overcome defensiveness
* Deepen sensemaking
* Engage creativity
* Reality check
* Change behaviour
* Nurture integrity.

Each area is explored in depth showing the potential blocks to their implementation and how to overcome them. There are also a number of exercises to help leaders effortlessly implement each practice on-the-job.

Leadership Blind Spots offers a powerful and practical set of tools that will be doubtless become vital parts of every leader’s toolkit.
