Leadership and Self-Deception

“Self-betrayal is the germ that creates the disease of self-deception. And, like child bed fever, self-deception has many different symptoms–from lack of motivation and commitment to stress and communication problems. Organizations die, or are severely crippled by those symptoms. And that happens because those who carry the germ don’t know they’re carrying it.” From Leadership and Self-Deception by The Arbinger Institute
