    An excellent apologia for performance review not an account of the science of self awareness as claimed in the blurb This is not Thinking Fast and Slow for self awarenessIf you live in the USA are a managerial worker and want to get out of performance reviews then you will get a lot out of this book Otherwise if you hoped to learn something about the science of self awareness then you will likely be disappointed because after reading this book I still do not know what that means and whether there genuinely is an established science on the subjectI suspect after reading this book that there is not such a thing Instead the author has used this device to cohere a lot of helpful insights on how we can reflect on our behaviour I base this suspicion on the lack of references to other researchers in the field beyond well known results that are only tangentially connected and upon the basic problem with the material namely that it fails to sufficiently distinguish between the in the present nature of awareness and the upon reflection nature of assessmentThe account is further undermined by extensive anecdotes and overly stretched metaphors The anecdotes are particularly problematic because they are so clearly fictional In particular they are just too neat employ an all seeing narrator and trade almost exclusively in stereotypes In person they are probably great ice breakers As part of a text they weaken the case being made This problem is worst in the opening and closing portions Lacking a rich source material the final chapter devolved into a folksy and glib stoicism for dealing with self absorbed peopleUPDATE For a superb book that does explain why we are not self aware see The Enigma of Reason

    I will admit to being pleasantly surprised with the writing When I raised this at Bookclub it sounded like everyone else was flabbergasted by this opinion but I stand by my point as the nearest comparison to a similar book is still that DREADFUL book about Drowning or Grief or whatever UghThis would have likely earned a 4th star had she not chosen to refer to people as unicorns But for the most part her non original reorganization of recognized neurological psychology was actually pretty useful The score is actually closer to 35 for me if only because of the worksheets and appendices she chose to include with the book which are actually supremely helpful and useful Looking forward to working through it just so I can verbalize some things to my selfShe actually sites things which is refreshing and unusual too Still if she had committed herself to 1 anecdote per chapter and removed her self inserts she would have accomplished her goal and the book would have been half as long

    I'm a sucker for these books Let's acknowledge that up front I'm a career management nerd so I'm all about books that deal with making yourself a effective person in whatever field you apply your energies to There are so many books out there targeted at people looking for this kind of advice and many of them are abysmally bad This one's not It is occasionally deeply irritating yes Whomever picks this book up from the little free lending library in which I eventually leave it may raise their eyebrows at some of the marginalia I felt compelled to add when particularly frustrated but it is balanced out with plenty of underlining of ideas I felt were compelling and well stated I could have lived without uite so many anecdotes particularly those involving the author herself who can come off a bit privileged and insincere In fact I want to blame her editorial team for some of the irritating details because it almost seemed she was following instructions to present her case studies in a certain tone that didn't feel natural Luckily the book makes up for its defects with a strong emphasis on actionable material The end matter is full of appendices and exercises to help you self evaluate and do real work to improve your ability to see yourself clearly and make adjustments to behaviors that aren't working for you Not every exercise makes perfect sense but I appreciate that some of them restate uestions from different angles that encourage you to double check your own assumptions For example one exercise asks you to reflect on the values you were raised with that you still hold and provides a list of values you might consider in case you're stuck Answering uestions like this with a provided list of values nearby tends to result in a larger result set as we tend to pick things that we think we should choose because we saw the word and feel that not picking it implies we don't value it A later uestion asks what values and behaviors you would most want to instill in your children For me at least this uestion helped me narrow in very uickly to five values that resonate very deeply and thus resulted in clearer insight about what it is that I really care about and can cultivate further to motivate me when I seek to improve

    All I can say iswowI came across this book from a post shared on LinkedIn by Susan Cain author of uiet I read the post and immediately found out about Tasha's book and ordered it This is one of the best investments in a book I've ever madeIt so happened that I was in the middle of a performance appraisal where I work and it was not clear to me that I would be successful in completing it and getting my contract renewed for another year The principles in this book about how we should go about being self aware and understanding how others really see us were of enormous value in my current situation and has given me much food for thought on how to handle my professional future as well as other aspects of my futureThanks Dr Eurich for a great book that deserves to be read much than once

    My fav uotes not a review Page 26 |self awareness is the will and the skill to understand yourself and how others see you Page 65 |According to Daniel Kahneman and other researchers our brains secretly and simplistically morph the uestion from “How happy are you with life these days?” into “What mood am I in right now?” Page 70 |flying too low meant the sea would weigh down the feathers and flying too high meant the sun would melt the wax But against his father’s instructions Icarus decides to fly too high And sure enough the wax melts knocking him out of the air and sending him to his death When it comes to the way we see ourselves we must be brave enough to spread our wings but wise enough not to fly too high Page 72 |In contrast the process of double loop learning involves confronting our values and assumptions and importantly inviting others to do so as well Page 79 |Conveniently self esteem was just one rung down and all that was needed to achieve it was a change in mindset In other words we didn’t need to become great;

    As a school counselor I am excited to utilize the concepts in this book both personally and with my students The book is a good balance of research based exposition as well as behavioral tools that are integrated within the chapters and delineated in the extensive appendices I appreciate Tasha Eurich's focus on behavioral interventions to increase internal and external self awareness This is practically a workbook for any individual wishing to make positive personal changes I recommend this book for anyone in the helping fields

  8. Sudhir Bharadhwaj Sudhir Bharadhwaj says:

    Fascinating insightBook is superbly positioned as a classic on self awareness While Daniel Goleman gets all the credit for popularizing Emotional Intelligence I think self awareness didn't get the much needed spotlight it deserves amongst all other components of emotional intelligence This book serves the purpose of putting the spotlight back on self awareness and it does a great job at it Loved all the narratives and stories in the book Do give it a read

    Insight Why We’re Not as Self Aware as We Think and How Seeing Ourselves Clearly Helps us succeed at Work and in Life was recently published this May 2017 I was first made aware of the book through an article by the New Yorker if I remember correctly which spoke about Eurich’s understanding of internal and external self awareness and how we can learn about it Considering that I am at a bit of a crossroads in my life at the moment—finished my master’s degree my birthday is coming up it is already mid 2017 where do I want this blog to go?—I felt like it was a good moment to see what Eurich’s book was all about Not to get all sappy about this book but sometimes I wonder if books choose us? I know I went thereThis book gives you not only a comprehensive understanding of internal and external self awareness which can be summarised as how you see yourself and how you think other people see you but also a deeper look at self awareness in relation to work management cultural norms and the psychology behind it There are some great uestions and tips in the Appendix of the book that can help you figure out how you fall on the spectrum of self awareness For the brave there is also a uiz you can take Be warned this will mean you and someone of your choosing will rate how self aware you think you are internally and externally I did the test and was not really surprised by my answer In fact I already knew what I would get Introspector And to paraphrase Eurich this means I am someone who is good at internal self awareness and pretty bad at judging how others see me This uiz prompted a conversation with my husband and I and we both came to the conclusion that I often think people don’t like me and I lack confidence in how others perceive my abilities Knowing this and actually articulating it can do wonders Even though I knew I had issues with self confidence and felt so concerned about everyone hating me actually knowing this speaking this to myself and using Eurich’s suggestions to open up my external self awareness has already been a pretty nice change It actually can help you see that people actually think you’re alrighttasha eurichDr Tasha EurichWhilst this books sounds super ‘self help ie’ it is not the usual sort of self help book And I should know since usually those books make me want to throw up This book has a lot of honesty and a lot of practical ways to deal with self awareness Eurich tackles cultural and gendered issues that can affect our self awareness Her book only scratches the surface though and there is so much that goes into self awareness that can be interpreted through culture gender religion age ability and economic status I cannot wait to see of Eurich’s workSeriously if you’re a human who lives on our planet Get This BookuoteHave you read any of Eurich’s books? How self aware are you really? Remember as always to share the reading lovehttpsbound2booksco20170614ins

I know I went thereThis book gives you not only a comprehensive understanding of internal and external self awareness which can be summarised as how you see yourself and how you think other people see you but also a deeper look at self awareness in relation to work management cultural norms and the psychology behind it There are some great uestions and tips in the Appendix of the book that can help you figure out how you fall on the spectrum of self awareness For the brave there is also a uiz you can take Be warned this will mean you and someone of your choosing will rate how self aware you think you are internally and externally I did the test and was not really surprised by my answer In fact I already knew what I would get Introspector And to paraphrase Eurich this means I am someone who is good at internal self awareness and pretty bad at judging how others see me This uiz prompted a conversation with my husband and I and we both came to the conclusion that I often think people don’t like me and I lack confidence in how others perceive my abilities Knowing this and actually articulating it can do wonders Even though I knew I had issues with self confidence and felt so concerned about everyone hating me actually knowing this speaking this to myself and using Eurich’s suggestions to open up my external self awareness has already been a pretty nice change It actually can help you see that people actually think you’re alrighttasha eurichDr Tasha EurichWhilst this books sounds super ‘self help ie’ it is not the usual sort of self help book And I should know since usually those books make me want to throw up This book has a lot of honesty and a lot of practical ways to deal with self awareness Eurich tackles cultural and gendered issues that can affect our self awareness Her book only scratches the surface though and there is so much that goes into self awareness that can be interpreted through culture gender religion age ability and economic status I cannot wait to see of Eurich’s workSeriously if you’re a human who lives on our planet Get This BookuoteHave you read any of Eurich’s books? How self aware are you really? Remember as always to share the reading lovehttpsbound2booksco20170614ins
