Top managers are often not able to get advice from their colleagues, which is why they can become blind to their own mistakes, Tallink Group board member Piret Mürk-Dubout said on Äripää’s radio show “Edukad jaynes”.

“At the top, you are alone. There are so many topics you would like to talk about, but you have no one to talk to,” shared Mürk-Dubout. According to him, there are many colleagues around managers, but they may not be completely honest or give sincere feedback.

“There is such a risk of blindness in any case where you become blind to your own functioning. Willingly or unwillingly, I also think about whether I have developed self-blindness as a leader,” he said.
