Leadership and Self-Deception… Getting Out of the Box

by The Arbinger Institute

At first glance, one might think this was just a business book. It’s way more than that. Leadership and Self-Deception is written in a fictional style and is very easy to understand. The contents are amazingly simple and extremely powerful…for life (as well as for business). It gives another perspective on how life can work. And coincidentally, it matches the ideas I teach… just in a different format.

Golden Nugget: We betray ourselves when we don’t do the inspired action (something we thought of…specifically when doing something for someone else). When we betray ourselves, we then then start blaming and justifying. If we’d done the inspired action, there would be no need for the blame or justification, and things go more smoothly.
