Since its original publication nine years ago, Leadership and Self-Deception has become an international word-of-mouth phenomenon. The book's central insight--that the key to leadership lays not in what we do, but in who we are--has proved to have powerful resonances not only for organizational leadership, but in listeners' personal lives as well. This new edition has been revised throughout to make the story more compelling. Drawing on the extensive correspondence the authors have received over the years, they have added a section that outlines the many ways that listeners have been using Leadership and Self-Deception, focusing on five specific areas: hiring, team building, conflict resolution, accountability, and personal growth and development. Leadership and Self-Deception uses an entertaining story about an executive facing challenges at work and at home to expose the subtle psychological processes that conceal our true motivations and intentions from us and trap us in a "box" of endless self-justification--even when we're convinced we're doing the right thing. Most importantly, the audiobook shows us the way out. Listeners will discover what millions already have--how to consistently tap into and act on their innate sense of what's right, dramatically improving all of their relationships.
