Leader’s Edge (Leadership)
Insight: The Surprising Truth About How Others See Us, How We See Ourselves, and Why the Answers Matter More Than We Think
This is a deep dive into a rather narrow, but foundational, subject. Eurich makes the case for why self-awareness is at the core of every leader’s success (or failure). With dozens of examples, the author defines self-awareness and explores its two major facets, internal self-awareness and external self-awareness. Using organizational psychology as a backdrop, paradoxical research conclusions are shared such as being how introspection is not a path toward self-awareness. The book starts with individual self-awareness but ends with organizational self-awareness and how leaders can improve group performance.
