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.

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.
