Have you felt shocked or blindsided by a staff member leaving suddenly, or extremely bothered by a potential customer who disappeared? How you perceive these events may have to do with the subtleties of whether your values and/or trauma show up in your everyday interactions — which is a blindspot for many.
Meet our featured guest, Likky Lavji. A widely known expert business mentor, speaker, coach, and entrepreneur, Likky is also the President and Co-Founder of Blindspots Global, which is a leadership development program. His cheeky-titled new book: Death By BS has recently hit Amazon’s #1 Selling Author List.
In this interview, Likky shares how a public speaking appearance in elementary school was so traumatizing, it caused him to develop a stutter. He couldn’t shake it off until decades later, after exiting one of his main businesses.
Likky touches on his daily hacks for swatting away negativity, networking authentically, and distilling values into three major themes to use for all leadership and sales activities.
