In the previous months, I’ve read some Arbinger Institute books. First, there was Leadership and Self-Deception: a true eye-opener. It sparked my interest for the other books they made. And so I read The Anatomy of Peace. That book still taught me something new, but I felt kind of disappointed afterwards. It seemed Leadership and Self-Deception had something extra.
In comes The Outward Mindset. This book dives deeper into the material the Arbinger Institute wants to share with others. Here’s my opinion on it.
Recently I read Leadership and Self-Deception and I thought that was an amazing book! Since then, I’ve told several colleagues to read that book. And they have. They also think it’s an amazing book so if you haven’t read it yet, go read it!
And if you have read it, there’s The Anatomy of Peace. The follow-up book that further explains the concepts. I just finished it.
In May, I added Leadership and Self-Deception to my list of books to read. I don’t remember how. Did I get a suggestion by a friend? Was it suggested by Goodreads? Or have I found it on a list of similar books? I really don’t remember. What I do remember is that I wanted to read it. The last three days, I did. And here’s what I think of it.
