Career Coaching by Former Fortune 500 Recruiters

Book Review: Leadership and Self-Deception by The Arbinger Institute

This is a very easy-to-read book because it’s told as a story of a fictitious company and the training it puts a new manager through.  Don’t be fooled by the simplicity however; this is a powerful book with an important message — essentially that we are often too immersed in the problem to see how much we contribute (or in fact are the problem).

It’s interesting that the title is so targeted to the business book genre with Leadership prominently in the lead.  Lots of the examples in the book are about family and other relationships, and I found this book to be exceptionally powerful in its advice for family and relationship.

This is a must-read for the proactive career manager and jobseeker because relationship-building is critical in your career, and this book provides a breezy framework for some eye-opening lessons.
