Can we live without delusion?

We are delusional every day. Whether in professional or private life: We get into situations in which we have a problem, encounter resistance or make wrong decisions. Then we often blame others for it without realizing what part we have ourselves in it. We are blind to our real motivations. In this state of self-delusion, we keep ourselves trapped in a “box” of endless self-justifications.

Our life consists of diverse relationships with other people, whether in family and friends or in our job. We are constantly interacting with other people. People have a keen sense of how we relate to them internally, regardless of how we behave externally. And how we actually see them depends crucially on our mindset. In a state of self-deception - "in the box" - we treat others as objects and focus only on ourselves. Our (self) perception is distorted and we are sabotaging our own efforts to be successful and happy in a professional and private context. If, on the other hand, we manage to get out of the box, we see others as equals, as people. In this way we are able to have good and effective relationships with others.

Leadership and delusion Using an entertaining and educational story about a manager, shows how self-deception dominates our lives, the damage it can do and - most importantly - what we can do about it. The readers learn how to use their innate sense of what is right to make decisive improvements in their professional and private life. In terms of conflict resolution, motivation, personal responsibility, teamwork and increased results, they benefit from the extensive research knowledge that the new edition of this international bestseller offers.
