International bestseller—over 750,000 copies sold and translated into 22 languages
Revised throughout, with a new section to help readers apply the lessons in the book
Reveals how we unwittingly sabotage relationships, at work and at home, despite our best intentions—and how we can stop

Since its original publication nine years ago, Leadership and Self-Deception has become an international word-of-mouth phenomenon. Rather than tapering off, it has sold more copies each year since 2004 than it did in any of the first four years after publication. The book’s central insight—that the key to leadership lays not in what we do, but in who we are—has proved to have powerful resonances not only for organizational leadership, but in readers’ personal lives as well.

This new edition has been revised throughout to make the story more readable and compelling. And drawing on the extensive correspondence the authors have received over the years they have added a section that outlines the many ways that readers have been using Leadership and Self-Deception, focusing on five specific areas: hiring, teambuilding, conflict resolution, accountability, and personal growth and development.

Leadership and Self-Deception uses an entertaining story about an executive facing challenges at work and at home to expose the subtle psychological processes that conceal our true motivations and intentions from us and trap us in a “box” of endless self-justification—even when we’re convinced we’re doing the right thing. Most importantly, the book shows us the way out. Readers will discover what millions already have—how to consistently tap into and act on their innate sense of what’s right, dramatically improving all of their relationships.

Applicable to every kind of relationship, but absolutely critical reading for every business, whether just starting out, or far along the continuum of its life cycle. Will be life changing for every reader who approaches the concepts put forth in this book with an open mind,an intensive search of the heart, and an honest look in the mirror.

Through a story, the book leads you to take an objective look in the mirror and determine if you are guilty of self-deception. Most of us engage in some level of self-deception; this book helps you penetrate it and dismantle it, as painful as that may be for some of us. I gave this book to several people including co-workers, boss, and family. Several people (including me) were moved to tears by the depth of the insights we got about our selves and our lives. It's a life changing book, what you get out of it can be applied to work and other life relationships.
