Daily Deals: Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting out of the Box, Chicken Big and Final Freeway
Today Amazon offers Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting out of the Box by The Arbinger Institute just for $1.99.
Leadership and Self-Deception uses an entertaining story about an executive facing challenges at work and at home to expose the precise psychological processes that conceal our true motivations and intentions from us and trap us in a “box” of endless self-justification. Most importantly, the book shows us the way out. The book’s central insight—that the key to leadership lays not in what we do, but in who we are—has proved to have powerful resonances not only for organizational leadership, but in readers’ personal lives as well.
This new edition has been revised throughout to make the story more readable and compelling. And drawing on the extensive correspondence they’re received over the years the authors have added a section that outlines the many ways that readers have been using this book.
Some words about the Author
“Arbinger” is the ancient French spelling of the word “harbinger.” It means “one that indicates or foreshadows what is to come; a forerunner.” The Arbinger Institute is a forerunner, a “harbinger,” of change.
Arbinger’s change work grows out of the development at the heart of the human sciences that is introduced in this book. Led by philosopher Terry Warner, a team of scholars has broken new ground in solving the age-old problem of self-deception. The result is a striking account of human behavior and human potential. The Arbinger Institute was founded to translate this important work into practical effect for individuals, families, and organizations worldwide.
Arbinger’s focus on organizations began when a well-known consultant asked for our help with one of his clients. As a result of Arbinger’s work, that company became the industry’s profit leader, eventually doubling and even tripling the return on investment of its nearest competitors. Out of that experience Arbinger began to focus on the organizational implications and applications of the self-deception problem and solution–a focus that continues today.
Chicken Big by Keith Graves is a book for young readers which offered by Amazon just for $1.99.
On a teeny little farm, in an itty-bitty coop, a very small hen laid a big, giant egg. And out of this egg came one big, humongous . . . something. ‘It’s big!’ clucked the little rooster. ‘It’s enormous!’ clucked the small chicken. ‘It’s an elephant!’ peeped the smallest chicken. ‘Run for your lives!’ they cried. No matter how they try, these clueless chickens can’t make sense of the gigantic new member of their familyGÇöuntil he saves the day. With wacky, laugh-out- loud humor and silliness to spare, this BIG twist on the classic Chicken Little story lends a whole new perspective to what it means to be chicken.
Some words about the Author
Keith Graves is Professor Emeritus at the Chicken School in Austin, Texas, where he teaches courses in chicken history. Strangely, he has the same name as another guy who wrote the book Frank Was a Monster Who Wanted to Dance, as well as some other ridiculous books, but we doubt he’s the same guy
