Workshops and Tools That Turn Human Bias Into Opportunity. At Career Blindspot we train people to understand people, so conflicts don’t impede trust and results. We believe when leaders understand their people and vice versa they will always succeed. Without understanding why people work, accountability is lost. Proudly based out of Phoenix, AZ, since 2007, Career Blindspot has assessed thousands of employees and candidates in a variety of roles – entry level, business development and executive level for selection and development purposes. We work with leaders who see value in learning more about themselves and their people. Our clients understand that people seek out the work they think they deserve and they can do better.
As a talent consultant, Juan Kingsbury guides teams and individuals to turn self- awareness and peer awareness into opportunities. He believes that, put in the right environment, any individual can and SHOULD be a superstar performer and be eager to prove it. Additionally, he collaborates with other consultants, recruiters, trainers and executives to foster their own expertise in talent management and recognition with Career Blindspot training and coaching.
