    The Power of Insight:
    How Self-Awareness Helps Us Succeed at Work and in Life

    Most people feel like they know themselves pretty well.
    But what if you could know yourself just a little bit
    better—and with this small improvement, get a big
    payoff...not just in your career, but in your life?

    Research shows that self-awareness is the meta-skill of
    the 21st century—people 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 people don’t see themselves quite as
    clearly as they could.

    Fortunately, reveals organizational psychologist Tasha
    Eurich, 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,
    Eurich helps audiences discover the surprising myths,
    unseen roadblocks, and scientifically proven path to self-awareness.

    Leadership Self-Awareness:
    The Secret Weapon to Succeed in a Complex World

    To compete in today’s increasingly challenging climate,
    business leaders must do many things: keep up with
    competitors, respond to a new generation of clients and
    employees, stay abreast of industry changes, attract and
    retain great talent, and more. But yesterday’s leadership
    tools simply aren’t enough to tackle tomorrow’s

    Fortunately, reveals organizational psychologist and New
    York Times bestselling author, Dr. Tasha Eurich, hope lies
    in one of the most important, yet least-examined,
    leadership capabilities: self-awareness. Leaders who
    cultivate it bust through barriers to change, perform
    better, make smarter decisions, and even lead more
    profitable companies.

    Through her academic research on the inner workings of
    thousands of individuals and her work as an elite
    executive coach to countless international corporations,
    Eurich has become an expert in the ways we delude
    ourselves at work and in life. Hear her data-backed advice
    for building and nurturing lasting self-awareness and
    passing these skills on to the teams you lead.

    Bankable Leadership:
    Happy People, Bottom-Line Results and the Power to Deliver Both

    In today’s competitive business environment, great
    leadership is as difficult as it is important: good leaders
    create economic value, and poor leaders can sink
    companies. Even though research tells us that effective
    leaders manage the tension between people and
    results, this complicated balancing act is easier said
    than done. Whether they know it or not, most leaders
    tend to prioritize one over the other, which drastically
    limits their success.

    Organizational psychologist Dr. Tasha Eurich will help
    you master this balance. Built on decades of research
    and the stories of real leaders who have transformed,
    her fresh, practical approach can help almost anyone
    become a Bankable Leader, producing powerful results
    and creating an environment where employees are productive and engaged.

    Leading Change:
    How Self-Aware Leaders Thrive in an Uncertain World

    Winston Churchill once said, “To improve is to change,
    and to be perfect is to change often.” Unfortunately,
    business leaders who are struggling to keep up with the
    pace of change often feel far from perfect. They know
    (and researchers agree) that their approach can either
    create an exciting new reality or doom the effort

    Organizational psychologist Dr. Tasha Eurich reveals the

    secrets to successfully leading change in our ever-
    changing world.

    Through counterintuitive research findings and the
    stories of real people and companies, audiences will
    learn how self-aware leaders successfully drive lasting
    change. They won’t just leave with a few new tools and
    approaches, but a newfound sense of confidence to
    make change happen.

    Becoming a Generational Genius:
    Why most Generational Problems are Leadership Problems in Disguise

    For centuries, older generations have been lamenting
    the foibles of younger generations. And for many
    business leaders, generational conflict isn’t just
    widespread—it seems downright inescapable. For Baby
    Boomers and Gen Xers, the surge of Millennials into the
    workforce has left them perplexed and vexed, while
    Millennials feel frustrated and misunderstood.
    New York Times best-selling author, organizational
    psychologist, and proud Millennial Dr. Tasha Eurich
    reveals why most generational problems are actually
    leadership and self-awareness problems in disguise.

    Audiences will learn the myths and realities of
    generational differences, what the real problems are,
    and how effective leadership can cure most
    generational ailments.

    People or Results? You Don’t Have to Choose!
    You probably already know how to build a budget, negotiate a deal, read a financial statement, and build a capital expenditure case. But does that make you a good leader?

Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical model can help anyone become bankable—producing results while fostering a healthy work environment that ensures sustainable success.
