The “disease” of self-deception (acting in ways contrary to what one knows is right) underlies all leadership problems in today’s organizations, according to the premise of this work. However well intentioned they may be, leaders who deceive themselves always end up undermining their own performance.This straightforward book explains how leaders can discover their own self-deceptions and learn how to escape destructive patterns. The authors demonstrate that breaking out of these patterns leads to improved teamwork, commitment, trust, communication, motivation, and leadership.

Dang it! I don’t like being in the box. I’m glad I know when I’m in the box. AND that I’m not the only one in the box and hopefully I’ll find my way out of the box easily. Every day 🙂 

Good book and easy to follow.

I personally like the way it was written. It was in a first person perspective. I enjoyed the way the story was told with diologue between different characters also. It made the approach to leadership easy to understand as well as apply in my own life. It was very eye opening.

This is a quick read and I thought it was very enlightening. I attended a training based on this book the last 2 days and it was some of the best leadership training I’ve ever had. Bonus: the principles in this book are applicable in your professional and personal relationships.

This book was a surprisingly easy read. By the name I thought I would encounter an almost clinical book – but the book was told in story form. Good read.
