Insight The Power of Self-Awareness in a Self-Deluded World Synopsis

Do you understand who you really are? Or how others really see you? We all know people with a stunning lack of self-awareness - but how often do we consider whether we might have the same problem? Research shows that self-awareness is the meta-skill of the 21st century - the foundation for high performance, smart choices, and lasting relationships. Unfortunately, we are remarkably poor judges of ourselves and how we come across, and it's rare to get candid, objective feedback from colleagues, employees, and even friends and family.

Insight The Power of Self-Awareness in a Self-Deluded World Press Reviews

'Think of the most cluelessly unselfaware person you know: your boss, annoying neighbor, brother-in-law. How can we avoid being that person? And teach our kids to avoid it? Eurich summarizes the fascinating science about self insight, but - perhaps more importantly - she studies admirable individuals who are self aware in a way that is applauded by their peers. You'll benefit from knowing what they know. Buy a copy for yourself and buy another to leave, anonymously, on your boss's desk.' -- Chip Heath, bestselling co-author of Switch and Decisive

'As an executive coach for almost four decades, I have seen firsthand how important it is for leaders to be self-aware. Tasha Eurich's Insight lives up to its title, offering effective tools for leaders to gain this critical perspective.' -- Marshall Goldsmith, executive coach, business educator and New York Times-bestselling author, ranked the number one leadership thinker in the world by Thinkers50

'Self-knowledge is key to a happy life, but it can be hard to know ourselves. It's easy to get distracted by the way we wish we were, or what we think we ought to be, or what others think we should be, until we lose sight of what's actually true. In Insight, Tasha Eurich suggests groundbreaking strategies and tips for seeing ourselves clearly. This book is a powerful resource for anyone seeking to live a happier, more successful life.' Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before
