Confront Your Blind Spots:
Targeted Reading for Coaching, Mentoring and Development

Everyone has blind spots. Even your greatest strengths have inherent liabilities. You might be a terrific analyst, but it may be at the expense of timely decision-making. You may get along very well with co-workers, but overcommit yourself. Once you have diagnosed areas where you could work on self-development and performance, get your reading "prescription" by selecting the appropriate area link.

These books and our assessment tools are a valuable resource for coaching and mentoring, as well as for your personal development.

Please feel free to contact us with your suggestions for book additions.
