Insight: Why We're Not as Self-Aware as We Think, and How Seeing Ourselves Clearly Helps Us Succeed at Work and in Life

By Tasha Eurich
What is the secret to happiness and success? You don't need to fix yourself. But you definitely need to know yourself.

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.

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