Transforming an organization requires leaders who are respected and trusted by their teammates. All leaders have "blind spots" that can diminish trust, undermine business results and inhibit meaningful change. Fearless Leadership details ten critical blind spots that are invisible to leaders and teams. The potential impact of each blind spot is meaningfully illustrated with stories stemming from the author's extensive hands-on experience in assisting corporate leadership teams in making change happen.
At the end of each chapter, Fearless Leadership provides Leadership Exploration (questions to help you identify negative leadership elements) and Leadership Action (inititives to overcome identified leadership problems). These sections are most helpful.
Fearless Leadership provides the concepts and tools needed for you to become a better leader by identifying the behavioral "blind spots" that are holding you (or your team) back and demonstrating ways that you can increase your courage.

An important book for your personal effectiveness and success.
Fearless Leadership needs to be mandatory reading for anyone who has a job. The book deals with the obstacles we all encounter at work. It points out how we can let those obstacles stop us in our tracks or we can deal with them and succeed personally and/or as a team. It is about our own personal leadership, whether we are "just" an employee or the big cheese. It shows how to recognize barriers to success and then how to deal with those barriers effectively.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I've studied with Dr. Malandro and I know her techniques work. This book is an easy and interesting read that gets at some very important aspects of all of our work lives. The section on dealing with our blind spots would make the purchase worthwhile all on it's own. I highly recommend the book to you, those you mentor or coach and for anyone you want to succeed at work.
