Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box | [The Arbinger Institute]

Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box

Most personal and organizational problems are the result of a little-known problem called "self-deception". We deceive ourselves into thinking we're doing the right thing for the right reason, but people won't follow a leader whose motives are selfish. The tricky thing is, we don't know that our motivation is flawed.

Publisher's Summary

Most personal and organizational problems are the result of a little-known problem called "self-deception". We deceive ourselves into thinking we're doing the right thing for the right reason, but people won't follow a leader whose motives are selfish. The tricky thing is, we don't know that our motivation is flawed. Through an entertaining and highly instructive story, this audio shows what self-deception is, how people get trapped in it, how it undermines relationships and organizational achievement, and, most importantly, the surprising way to solve it.

The Arbinger Institute is a consulting firm and scholarly consortium that includes people trained in business, law, economics, philosophy, the family, education, and psychology. Arbinger has worked with leaders from such major organizations as Microsoft, 3M, Cornell University, and the U.S. Navy.

    "Unique aproach to business interactions"

    This book is actually one of the few I have recommended and relistened to. The story format makes it an easy listen. You can get the most of the book in the first two thirds, but I bet it will make you really think about your interactions with others and authentic conversations with them. Listen if your working to achieve more credibility with your peers or staff.

    "repetition and annoying"

    Worst buy from audible. I could not stand the different reading. It is like listening a play which annoyed me. The book just repeats itself , being in the box/out of the box and nothing more.

    "Self Help Pablum"

    Self-help pablum read with all the skill of a high school play. If you want to learn how to treat people, read religious great book of your choice and faith. The golden rule reduced to new age drivel.
