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.

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.

A life changing read

Having never written a review I felt compelled to do so about this book. Hooked from page one and gripped to the last page, this is one of those books to reread from the moment you finish it. Filled with light bulb moments of insight and inspiration, this is (for me) a life changing book. Applicable in the domestic, work and social environments which we all live in at all times there is so much to learn and take away from this book. It's a must read and a huge thank you to Tasha for writing it.

PROPERLY CONFRONTS THE CHALLENGES OF FEEDBACK

This book breaks down the challenges of self awareness and feedback and gives practical and actionable advice on how to move through what many of us consider the emotional equivalent of going to the dentist and emerge the other side. I suggest you give yourself time to read the first three chapters as I arrived for a monthly management meeting after chapter 2 suddenly questioning whether everything I thought about myself was true! There are so many takeaways from this book and those that struck me were feedback is not just about asking for it but creating an environment where people don't have to feel brace to do so.

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
