This book uses an entertaining story to identify self-deception as the underlying cause of leadership failure, and show how any leader can overcome self-deception to become a consistent catalyst of success. The authors show that the key to successful leadership lies deeper than a particular technique, behavior or skill, and that most people problems in organizations are the result of self-deception--a problem that can be identified, isolated, and treated in a disciplined, results-oriented way. The book demonstrates how people can stop undermining themselves and what happens when they do--freely and fully putting to work all the behavioral skills, systems, and techniques that will bring success to them and their organizations.--From publisher description.
