Insight: Why We’re Not as Self-Aware as We Think, and How Seeing Ourselves Clearly Helps Us Succeed at Work and in Life – Tasha EurichDownload Insight: Why We’re Not as Self-Aware as We Think, and How Seeing Ourselves Clearly Helps Us Succeed at Work and in Life ebook. Research shows that self-awareness – knowing who we are and how others see us – is the foundation for high performance, smart choices, and lasting relationships. Without it, it’s impossible to master the skills needed to succeed in business and life: skills like emotional intelligence and empathy, influence and persuasion, communication and collaboration.
Most people instinctively know this. After all, it’s become almost a national pastime to point out when self-awareness is lacking in the people around us: politicians, coworkers and bosses, in-laws, the friend who posts endless selfies on social media. The problem is we rarely consider whether we, too, could stand to improve on this critical skill. And making matters worse, it’s woefully rare to get candid, honest feedback on how we come across, both at work and at home.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Integrating hundreds of studies with her own research and work in the Fortune 500 world, organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich shows us what it takes to see ourselves more clearly: how to better understand what makes us tick on the inside, how to get others to tell us the honest truth about how they see us, and how to use this insight for greater success, confidence and self-acceptance.
Through stories of people who’ve made dramatic gains in self-awareness, she offers surprising secrets, techniques and strategies to help readers do the same – and therefore improve their work performance, career satisfaction, leadership potential, relationships, and more.
A Business Insider Best Book of 2017
A Strategy + Business Best Business Book of 2017
“A sprawling exploration of the psychic frailty that leads to self-delusion and self-aggrandizement, and—importantly—a compassionate, helpful guide for avoiding that path (or reversing it).” – Fortune
“A bold, exhilarating take on self-improvement…brings fresh perspective to an old question. This book might help you perform better, make better decisions and become happier.”
“Dr. Tasha Eurich’s new book is a sometimes uncomfortable, always powerful eye-opener to what it takes to be truly successful. Insightful, penetrating, humane, and holistic in her approach….. [her] advice-that we should challenge our own beliefs about who we are, and enlist others to do the same-she knows is hard. But it’s the hard things that are worth doing, that will lead to sustainable success in individuals, organizations, even nations. Insight shows us how” – 800 CEO Read
“Think of the most cluelessly unselfaware person you know: your boss, annoying neighbor, brother-in-law. How can we avoid being that person? And teach our kids to avoid being that person as well? Eurich summarizes the fascinating science about self insight, but–perhaps more importantly–she studies admirable individuals who are self-aware in a way that is applauded by their peers. You’ll benefit from knowing what they know. Buy a copy for yourself and buy another to leave, anonymously, on your boss’s desk.” – Chip Heath, coauthor, New York Times bestsellers Switch and Decisive
“Self-knowledge is key to a happy life, but it can be hard to know ourselves. It’s easy to get distracted by the way we wish we were, or what we think we ought to be, or what others think we should be, until we lose sight of what’s actually true. In INSIGHT, Tasha Eurich shines a spotlight on people who have managed to gain insight into themselves, and she suggests groundbreaking strategies and tips for seeing ourselves clearly. This book is a powerful resource for anyone seeking to live a happier, more successful life.” – Gretchen Rubin, NY Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project, and Better Than Before
“As an executive coach for almost four decades, I have seen firsthand how important it is for leaders to be self-aware. Tasha Eurich’s ‘Insight’ lives up to its title, offering effective tools for leaders to gain this critical perspective.” – Marshall Goldsmith, executive coach, business educator and New York Times-bestselling author, ranked the number one leadership thinker in the world by Thinkers50
“If I had to name the secret ingredient to the success I’ve enjoyed in my career, I would say that it all boils down to a commitment to self-awareness. In this groundbreaking and thought-provoking book, Tasha Eurich shows how we can all seize that single greatest opportunity for continuous growth, improvement, and performance. It’s the book I wish I’d had when starting out in business and the book I’d recommend to anyone who wants to cultivate the kind of self-knowledge that is the bedrock of personal and professional success. Very insightful indeed!” – Alan Mulally, retired CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes and The Ford Motor Company
