Five most common blind spots

Blind Spots
Claudia M. Shelton

Your behaviour might have been impressive about five years ago among a group of college students, but the same may not appeal to a boss who manages you now. Similarly, “what brought you success as an individual contributor may not work to help you manage a group, or build relationships with a new set of peers.”

Also, “what made you successful in the corporate world is likely to be quite different from what makes you prosperous and happy in the world of the entrepreneur.” Why so? Because the meaning of success changes and reality shifts over time, reasons Claudia M. Shelton in Blind Spots ( http://www.wiley.com/). “When we don’t recognise that shift, when we still think of success in old ways, we have blind spots.”
