Publisher's Summary

This third edition of an international best-seller - more than two million copies sold worldwide and translated into 33 languages - details how its powerful insights on motivation, conflict, and collaboration can benefit organizations as well as individuals.   

Since its original publication in 2000, Leadership and Self-Deception has become an international word-of-mouth phenomenon. Rather than tapering off, it sells more copies every year. The guide's central insight - that the key to leadership lies not in what we do, but in who we are - has proven to have powerful implications not only for organizational leadership but in listeners’ personal lives as well.   

Leadership and Self-Deception uses an entertaining story everyone can relate to about a man facing challenges at work and at home to expose the fascinating ways we blind ourselves to our true motivations and unwittingly sabotage the effectiveness of our own efforts to achieve happiness and increase happiness. We trap ourselves in a “box” of endless self-justification.  

Most importantly, the audiobook shows us the way out. Listeners will discover what millions already have learned - how to consistently tap into and act on their innate sense of what’s right, dramatically improving all of their relationships.  

This third edition includes new research about the self-deception gap in organizations and the keys to closing this gap. The authors offer guidance for how to assess the in-the-box and out-of-the-box mind-sets in yourself and in your organization. It also includes a sample of Arbinger’s latest best-seller, The Outward Mindset.

Narration was a bit dry but spot on otherwise

not quite the book I expected it to be, but it was very informative a lot once I was able to get past what I felt was a very dry performance for narration

Essential

This is one of if not THE most important book I’ve ever read. Many of these books start to sound the same, but this book is a breath of fresh air. Note to readers: as amazing as this book is, the resources section provided zero value and came across as an advertisement for other books from this company. Despite that, I still give this book a perfect rating

Eye opening and life changing!!

Love this book! Is a life changer that helped me see within myself a lot of the resemblance of actions that I have taken. It will be a challenge to put into place, but well worth it and exciting to begin that travel down this new road!

Glad I was forced to take in this book

I was mandated to read this book for a leadership course. I’m glad I was because it caused me to take an introspective look at myself in ways that I am confident will help me in various aspects of my life.

Box

Half the book talks about in the box and out of the box. Box this, box that. Great concepts but a bit too much, I’m tired of hearing the word box now!
