    Recognizing why we do this and how we can get out of the trap is the subject of the new book, Blind Spots: Why We Fail to Do What's Right and What to Do about It, by Max H.

      To guide people on a journey of continuous learning, understanding and adapting to events as they occur, leaders must overcome their own blind spots and those of their organization. Any leader who implements the practices outlined in this book will immediately improve their ability to perform in today’s competitive global environment. However, too often, our blind spots lead to divisions and disagreements, preventing God's people from testifying to his grace with one voice. In this provocative book, Collin Hansen helps us view our differences as opportunities to more effectively engage a needy world with the love of Christ.5/5(2).

    If the last 10 months in the US haven’t been proof enough of how ethical blind spots undermine the good efforts of good people, this book calls out additional blindspots that most people have never considered. Put plainly, every business person, leader and politician should read this book carefully to safeguard their businesses and society. Blindspot’s index of studies, reports, and papers showing what the authors used to support their key points, provides the book additional strength. Although the IAT is a statistically solid measurement tool, the index provides those readers who seek more verification with the resources and data for that kind of undertaking.
