To be seen or Not to be seen – Leadership Visibility
“The power of visibility can never be underestimated.” Margaret Cho -

The ability to see or be seen and the degree, quality or state of being known to the public. Why visibility is so important today?
How to prepare for the future?
The fascinating idea came from John Blakey: The Trusted Executive. Imagine if you “had teleported a 1970s businessman into a 21st century boardroom and placed him amongst his modern-day peers? What would he have made of their smart phones and their video-conferencing, their tie-less, smoke-free conversations on the rise of Generation Y, their strange habit of pouring their own coffees at the break? Not to mention that the lady sat at the table is not a minute-taking secretary, but the CEO herself!”

Blind Spots are also causing problems when they prevent us from learning and adapting to changes especially in today’s VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) environment.
