Leadership and Self-Deception

NEW EXPANDED EDITION includes new chapter on how others have used the book in their organizations.
For too long, the issue of self-deception has been the realm of deep-thinking philosophers, academics, and scholars working on the central questions of the human sciences. The public remains generally unaware of the issue. That would be fine except that self-deception is so pervasive it touches every aspect of life.
“Touches” is perhaps too gentle a word to describe its influence. Self-deception actually determines one’s experience in every aspect of life. The extent to which it does that, and in particular the extent to which it is the central issue in leadership, is the subject of this book.

The Anatomy of Peace

What if in our conflicts with others there is something we want more than solutions? What if conflicts at home, conflicts at work, and conflicts in the world stem from the same root cause? And what if individually and collectively we systematically misunderstand that cause, and unwittingly perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve? These are among the important questions explored in The Anatomy of Peace. Through an intriguing story of parents who are struggling with their children and problems that have come to consume their lives, we learn from once bitter enemies the way to find peace whenever war is upon us. Yusuf al-Falah, an Arab, and Avi Rozen, a Jew, each lost their fathers at the hands of the other’s ethnic cousins. The Anatomy of Peace is a story of how they came together, how they help warring parents and children to come together, and how we too can find our way out of the struggles that weigh us down.
While Leadership and Self-Deception focuses on the workplace, The Anatomy of Peace explores the freeing and surprising implications of these ideas in all aspects of life. In addition, while Leadership and Self-Deception explored how to solve self-deception in oneself, The Anatomy of Peace goes beyond, and explores how to spread that solution among others.

The Arbinger Profile™

The Arbinger Profile™ is an inverse 360° assessment tool. In 360° assessments, employees are scored/evaluated by their peers, subordinates and superiors to give them a good picture of who they are and where they need to improve.The philosophy behind 360° feedback is: We are revealed most completely by what others think of us. Based on Arbinger’s ground breaking ideas, The Arbinger Profile™ now helps employees be scored/evaluated by themselves based on how they see their peers, subordinates and superiors. The philosophy here in Arbinger is: We are revealed more than completely by what we think of others!
