The Outward Mindset
Unknowingly, too many of us operate from an inward mindset—a narrow-minded focus on self-centered goals and objectives. When faced with personal ineffectiveness or lagging organizational performance, most of us instinctively look for quick-fix behavioral band-aids, not recognizing the underlying mindset at the heart of our most persistent challenges. Through true stories and simple yet profound guidance and tools, The Outward Mindset enables individuals and organizations to make the one change that most dramatically improves performance, sparks collaboration, and accelerates innovation—a shift to an outward mindset.
Leadership and Self-Deception
Leadership and Self-Deception uses an entertaining story everyone can relate to about a man facing challenges at work and at home to expose the fascinating ways that we blind ourselves to our true motivations and unwittingly sabotage the effectiveness of our own efforts to achieve happiness and increase results. We trap ourselves in a “box” of endless self-justification. Most importantly, the book shows us the way out. Readers will discover what millions already have learned—how to consistently tap into and act on their innate sense of what’s right, dramatically improving all of their relationships.
The Anatomy of Peace
From the authors of Leadership and Self-Deception comes an international bestseller that instills hope and inspires reconciliation. Through a moving story of parents who are struggling with their own children and with problems that have come to consume their lives, we learn from once-bitter enemies the way to transform personal, professional, and global conflicts, even when war is upon us.
This book, written to facilitate personal discovery, explains for a general audience the solution to an age-old problem in the human sciences–the paradox of self-deception. In groundbreaking work, Dr. C. Terry Warner and a team of scholars revealed an explanation to and path out of this paradox. This accessible and thought-provoking book outlines the flow of that discovery and illuminates the choice we face in every moment—the choice that determines our entire experience.
The Choice in Teaching and Education
The art and structure of both teaching and learning are widely misunderstood. They happen at a level much deeper than typical educational efforts suppose. Understanding this deeper level reveals a new way to learn, teach, and administrate educational institutions.
The Choice in Intervention
This book shows how resistance, in all its subtle forms, creeps into and undermines intervention efforts. When others resist our help, there is a way to preserve a deep awareness of their humanity. This book is written to help the general reader improve their intervention efforts, whether at home, at school, in a formal treatment program, or within the context of informal relationships.
Angels Among Us
This short but compelling book tells the true and inspiring story of a woman who was abandoned by her family and raised in an orphanage. Her story is at once tragic and uplifting, illuminating the foundational principles that govern any effort to work with those who are in need.
Moment to moment we make a choice that determines our entire experience: we choose how we see and respond to the people around us. Depending on how we choose, we either blind ourselves to reality and make our own and others’ lives worse or obtain a clarity that equips us to make everything better. This book is about understanding the nature and consequences of this choice. It is about learning to choose well.
Bonds That Make Us Free
Bonds That Make Us Free is a ground-breaking book that suggests the remedy for our troubling emotions by addressing their root causes. You’ll learn how, in ways we scarcely suspect, we are responsible for feelings like anger, envy, and insecurity that we have blamed on others. (How many times have you said, “You’re making me mad!”)
Even though we fear to admit this, it is good news. If we produce these emotions, it falls within our power to stop them. But we have to understand our part in them far better than we do, and that is what this remarkable book teaches. Finding these truths is the key to healing our relationships and coming to ourselves, and Bonds That Make Us Free starts us on that great journey.
The Seven PathsTM
Discover the Healing Power of the Wilderness
People have moved away from Mother Earth, bringing heartache, pain, and other maladies of the modern age. The “self-help” movement claims to offer peace and fulfillment to individuals, but this solitary approach takes us only so far. Ultimately, it is in communion with our fellow beings and the natural world, that we are made whole. We need to leave the path of Me and follow the path of We.
