Transcript

  • 1. Leadership and Self Deception (The Book) Lessons learned Jack Bezalel
  • 2. Why Leaders Need to Find and cope with their Self Deception?• Because it hurts their self perception• Because it hurts other’s self perception• Because it brings up contagious negative emotions• Because it impairs innovation and performance and it not fun at all!• Because it is easy to resolve
  • 3. How is Self Deception manifested?• It all starts with Self Betrayal• You betray yourself when you feel how you should act, and you choose to do differently• You then use Self Deception to justify your act• You then seldom end up blaming others in causing the situation to end up then way it did
  • 4. What is influence all about?• Influencing others requires you to be honest about the situation and your role in it• You cannot influence if you dwell in self deception• Blaming will not increase your influence. Instead people will disconnect from you• Blaming others, without telling them, has the same affect as blaming them upfront
  • 5. You can’t influence things• You can’t influence if you Treat others as things or machines. Nobody likes this and they will only do what they have to.• Influence is about having people willingly do what the team’s goal requires and even more• People will connect to the team’s goal willingly if they feel respected, their emotions are recognized and working is fun
  • 6. You have doubts when you treat people as things• Doubts have a tendency to turn into reality• Someone promises something• You doubt them, as you treat them as things that cannot change as people can• Doubts turn into expectations (negative ones)• People will feel your doubts, and be hurt• People may then fail or not, still you will ignore any positive intent they had, to justify your doubt
