In this ground-breaking book, a leading think tank on management training identifies self-deception as a key cause of leadership failure and shows leaders how to avoid the trap and use the skills and techniques necessary for success. Highly recommended by Steven Covey of "Seven Habits" fame.

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.

This book came like a slap in the face, but once you embrace the change the principles taught here really do transform your life. I can personally attest to that.
