The Outward Mindset: Seeing Beyond Ourselves

The Arbinger Institute’s previous two books were incredible. I recommend them often. As a matter of fact, just this weekend, I recommended them to my team. My expectations for their newest release were sky high, and The Outward Mindset did not disappoint!

The preface of the book had me hooked. They asked you to think of the people whom you like the most, who had positive influence on you, people that inspire you. They asked you to think of the acquaintance you most respect. The common thread is how these people make you feel. They made you feel seen and important to them. Once you develop “the outward mindset”, you will be more collaborative with your team, peers and organization. Simply put, others will feel seen and heard by you. What if YOU came to mind when someone felt respected and admired! What would that say about you as a human being? As a co-workier? As a leader?

Innately, we all know that the right mindset makes the difference in our interactions, both personal professional. It is the difference between success and failure. Using the Arbinger principles and applying the concepts in The Outward Mindset will change your mind. It is not easy, but the payoff will be expansive. This is one of the better reads on the list.
