Publisher's Summary

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.

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. Through stories of people who've made dramatic self-awareness gains, she offers surprising secrets, techniques and strategies to help listeners do the same - and therefore improve their work performance, career satisfaction, leadership potential, relationships and more.

At a time when self-awareness matters more than ever, Insight is the essential playbook for surviving and thriving in an unaware world.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

Excellent Book

This book kept me interested all the way through. Lots of examples to communicate the information which I found interesting. I had no problems finding the PDF, which I was worried about having read reviews before purchasing.

An excellent apologia for performance reviews

If you live in the USA and work at executive level in the corporate work world and want to get more out of performance reviews, then this book is for you. If you hoped to learn about the 'science of self-awareness', then you will likely be disappointed

Excellent book on self awareness

A thought-provoking book that offers ideas and tools to improve our self awareness. Understanding that our impact may not be the same as our actions is important for all of us in this world where far too many people shoot off their thoughts without a second glance. Highly recommended.

Great insights with relevant stories

Eurich provides great self reflection of her own stories and how we can use feedback to better work and live with others. This book is a great eye opener for anyone who wants or need to be more present, listen more, and be a little less self absorbed.

Liked the book but where’s the accompanying PDF?!!!

Been going in circles to find it. Please send. URGENT!! Have recommended the book to others but being unable to get the “accompanying.pdf” is detracting from the experience and the rating.

Just brilliant

As an Org Behaviour lecturer and one with a penchant for self-learning, this was a fantastic listen. The narration is fantastic, and the accompanying PFD makes for accessible follow up on the learned principles. I will use some of this knowledge in class!

Might be life changing - check back in a few years

Insight takes on a rather nebulous concept, self-awareness, explains it, and tells you how you might get there. The initial difficulty is that everyone thinks he is already self-aware. The book is deceptively dense, despite being clearly written, and deserves several listens. Also, I suspect that the book will have no effect if you don't do the exercises in the appendix. This book might make me more insightful, but it is too soon to tell.
