From the Publisher
Most people and organizations tackle common problems—disengagement, conflict, poor communication, and so on—by trying to change behavior. The problem is that a behavioral focus alone will not solve these problems. Why? Because they are driven by mindset. Through training, coaching, consulting, and a suite of implementation tools, Arbinger helps individuals, teams, and organizations achieve breakthrough results by shifting from the default self-focus of an inward mindset to the impact-focus of an outward mindset. Programs and methodology are based on four decades of research in the psychology of human behavior and experience working with organizations worldwide in the corporate, healthcare, education, government, public safety, and nonprofit sectors.
Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box
Leadership and Self-Deception shows how the problems that typically hamper performance in organizations and cause conflicts in our personal lives are the result of a little-known problem called self-deception. It exposes the fascinating ways that we blind ourselves to our true motivations and unwittingly sabotage the effectiveness of our own efforts to achieve success and increase happiness. Through an entertaining and engaging story, Leadership and Self-Deception shows what self-deception is, how it operates, the damage it does, and, most importantly, what can be done about it.
This third edition includes new research about the self-deception gap in organizations and the keys to closing this gap. It also includes the first chapter from Arbinger’s latest bestseller, The Outward Mindset.
The Anatomy of Peace: Resolving the Heart of Conflict
What if conflicts at home, at work, and in the world stem from the same root cause? What if we systematically misunderstand that cause? And what if, as a result, we unwittingly perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve? These are among the important questions explored in The Anatomy of Peace, an international bestseller that instills hope and inspires reconciliation.
Through an intriguing story of parents who are struggling with their children and with problems that have come to consume their lives, we learn from once-bitter enemies the way to transform personal, professional, and even global conflicts.
