Dr. Tasha Eurich – The Power of Insight

The Power of Insight: How Self-Aware Leaders Succeed in an Ever-Changing World, with Dr. Tasha Eurich: Organizational Psychologist, Researcher, Blogger and The New York Times best-selling Author

Research shows that self-awareness is the meta-skill of the 21st century.  Women who know who they are and how they’re seen are more successful, more confident, build better relationships, and are more respected and effective leaders than those who don’t. There’s just one problem: most of us don’t see ourselves quite as clearly as we could. Fortunately, organizational psychologist, Dr. Tasha Eurich, reveals that self-awareness is a surprisingly developable skill.  Drawing on her research with thousands of people around the world, hundreds of scientific studies, and 15 years of working with Fortune 500 clients, she helps audiences discover the surprising myths, unforeseen roadblocks, and a scientifically proven path to self-awareness.
