This Blog is Dedicated to our dear friend Karen.
When she left this life she left a hole in our hearts as well as several to be read books.
We, her friends, will read these books for her.
This blog will be a sort of book club for us to post our thoughts and feelings about the stories and feelings we have of Karen while we read.

#423 Leadership and Self-Deception by Arbinger Institute
Out of all the books I've read from Karen's list, this one I am most curious in knowing how it ever ended up on her list. Who recommended it to her? Where did she hear of it? Why was this one on her list?
This book is told in a story, so easy to read, however a bit confusing too. A lot to take in. It talks about the concept of being a good leader by "getting out of the box" and not allowing oneself to "self-betray" and/or blame others, but seeing people as people and not objects. When we see others as people we will treat them differently/better. Like when driving and we are annoyed by other drivers, are we seeing them as objects or real-life people. If we are seeing them as people chances are we would be more patient with the other drivers. And so on. It is a good read, a lot to take in and think about.
