Complacency Creep

Blind spots can hinder your business’ ability to see all there is to see.  It’s easy to see them with hindsight when your firm is confronted by something that it didn’t expect, anticipate or predict.  By seeking out ways to shake things up both personally and professionally we can create an environment that lowers the chance of being blindsided.  In this video we start with reviewing Edward de Bono’s four complacencies, then consider blind trust and how to create leadership and management.

Watch the video for background information about Complacency Creep, feel free to request the templates I am happy to share.
