Soapbox Saturday - Leadership and Self-Deception

We just got back late last night from our little trip.  I'll tell you more about that later.  This is Soapbox Saturday, so I wanted to tell you about this book I just finished.  It's called "Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box" and it was an AWESOME book.  I can't stop thinking about it.


I don't want to tell you too much about it because I might either not explain it well enough or ruin it for you.  It has a lot of basic ideas and concepts that you've thought of before but it puts a lot of things into a totally different perspective than you every thought of before.  If you feel the desire to improve any communication you have with anyone in your life, I highly recommend this book.  It will change the way you think.

It's also written as a story, which makes it really easy to read and relate to.  It will help you look deep inside of yourself and questions your true motives and thoughts.

Okay.  That's all I'm going to say.  You can find it HERE on Amazon or it's probably at your local library.  I'm not being paid to write about this and I'm not even a person who spends hours on end reading.  I was, however, extremely impressed by this book and I think you will be too.

Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I loved it as well! I feel like it is one of those things I need to read/listen to (audio book is great!) a few times a year until I can cement these tactics into my life!

  4. The same group also wrote and published a book called "The Anatomy of Peace" it is generally the same concepts, but explained on a more family relationship level. I loved this book much more than "Leadership and Self-Deception", something just clicked with "Anatomy of Peace" that didn't with this one, although, both are great books.

  5. After my 1st year at BYU I worked as a counselor at a wilderness rehab program in Lehi. The first requirement for all of the "students" (aka recovering addicts) was to read this book. Of course, we all had it pretty memorized, and what a difference it still makes in my life!

  9. I loved this one too! If you want something similar, but more in-depth and personally challenging, try "Bonds That Make Us Free". It is written by the same group and is FABULOUS! It took me quite a bit longer to read than "Leadership" because you can't move on until you make changes. But, well worth the time.
