Insight

 

AT A TIME WHEN SELF-AWARENESS MATTERS MORE THAN EVER, INSIGHT IS THE ESSENTIAL PLAYBOOK FOR SURVIVING AND THRIVING IN AN UNAWARE WORLD.

Do you understand who you really are? Or how others really see you? We all know people with a stunning lack of self-awareness—but how often do we consider whether we might have the same problem?

Research shows that self-awareness is the meta-skill Of the 21st century—the foundation for high performance, smart choices, and lasting relationships. Unfortunately, we are remarkably poor judges of ourselves and how we come across, and it's rare to get candid, objective feedback from colleagues, employees, and even friends and family.

Through stories of people who've made dramatic self-awareness gains, organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich 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.

    “Think of the most cluelessly un-self-aware person you know: your boss, annoying neighbor, or brother-in-law. How can we avoid being that person? And teach our kids to avoid it? 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.”

    “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.”

    “[Insight is] both 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).”

    “In this groundbreaking and thought-provoking book, Tasha Eurich shows how we can all seize that single greatest opportunity for continual growth and 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!”

    “The commonsense view of self-awareness, self-reflection, and how we should question ourselves is generally wrong and unhelpful. Too often in our lives and work, our obvious conclusions keep us trapped in behaviors we don't like. Using her own experiences and the results of a great deal of research, Eurich brings focus on how we might reach real insight—the kind that transforms us and our relationships with those we work with.”

THE FIRST DEFINITIVE BOOK ON THE SCIENCE OF SELF-AWARENESS, INSIGHT IS A FASCINATING JOURNEY INTO EVERYONE’S FAVORITE TOPIC: THEMSELVES.

Integrating hundreds of studies with her own research and work in the Fortune 500 world, organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich shatters conventional assumptions about what it takes to truly know ourselves— like why introspection isn't a bullet train to insight, how experience is the enemy of self-knowledge, and just how far others will go to avoid telling us the truth about ourselves.

 

IN INSIGHT, YOU'LL LEARN...

  • The Seven Pillars of Insight that separate the aware from the unaware.
  • The invisible roadblocks to self-awareness.
  • Why introspection doesn't always lead to insight.
  • Why common approaches to self-awareness like therapy and journaling have hidden pitfalls.
  • The surprising habits that dramatically increase self-awareness.
  • Why few people know how other people see them and how to learn the truth.
  • How to hear feedback without fighting or fleeing.
  • How to deal with the delusional people in your life.
  • And more.
Tasha Eurich

“I’m hoping this book will be a powerful wake-up call to three simple facts: that self-awareness is the exquisite foundation to a life well-lived, that it is possible to make the journey, and that the courage and effort it takes to get there are well worth it.”
