The message of Jon Clifton’s (2022) new book, Blind Spot, is that the volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous context of business has created enormous pressures on the modern employee with 28% of employees exhibiting chronic depression, extreme sadness, or other mental health problems. Those conditions negatively affect employee commitment and engagement and hamper the ability of organizations to succeed in a highly competitive global environment. The root cause of this “well-being problem” is the convergence of a multitude of economic and social problems that challenge the best efforts of even the most capable leaders.
