Leadership and Self-Deception

30-60 minute program. May be adapted for different time periods.

Stated simply, self-deception is “the problem of not knowing one has a problem”. This denial keeps individuals, teams, and organizations blind to the reality of what is occurring and explains why enormous resources and efforts allocated towards symptoms are misdirected and contribute to further organizational hampering or implosion. Organizational problems are almost always people problems. Conflicts that look “political” are really personal and they keep individuals looking out for themselves rather than focusing on accountability and results. As long as employees are not focused on results for the organization, they are working for their own interests and therefore against the company mission. The costs are enormous on many levels. With a focus on the people who are involved in the problem, this presentation exposes how working on self-deception is at the heart of the solution.
