Self-deception is the action or practice of allowing oneself to believe that a false or unvalidated feeling, idea, or situation is true.
This situation happens to each one of us, usually without us even realising.
‘Leadership & Self Deception’ by The Arbinger Institute, details through story how people facing challenges at work or home, blind themselves about their true motivations, showing how you can even sabotage your own effectiveness to achieve success & happiness.
They do this through a process called getting out of the box.
They say, most are in the box (think about themselves rather than others) most of the time, and the challenge is to get out of the box (think more about others) as much as you can.
The theory is. Keep mostly out of the box and you’ll excel with your relationships, both at home and in business. Eventually helping you to become an excellent leader.
The book, through a story, details why you are in the box, provides a blue print of how to get out of the box, and shows the positive impact it can have if you can stay out of the box.
Yes. It sounds complicated. But it’s not. It’s just a difficult thing to explain. The best way to understand, is for you to read the book.
It’s a decent read, and anyone who wants to improve their personal or business relationships should give it a read.
‘Leadership & Self-Deception’ gets a thumbs up & 4 stars.
