    1 thought on “The Outward Mindset: Seeing Beyond Ourselves

    1. Nope. Not particularly advanced. Many schemes. Too many schemes, were the authors bitten by an McK consultant?Yeah, some examples are sort of OK, still, the most of the 'juice' feels lefft out of the picture. Probably, to keep competition from using stuff on their own. Again, consulting-style.

    2. Super basic. It leaves a lot of unanswered questions, but some good tips and reminders one can implement at work.

    3. Yes, focusing on others--on customers, on employees, on the heads of other teams and departments, on the company as a whole instead of on just your piece of the pie--will get you further than only focusing inward. This book has great examples of the why's and some good tips on the how's. There are also polarities involved in this huge shift. Adam Grant's Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success for example, points out that Givers succeed over the long run only if they have boundaries. [...]

    4. There are a gazillion leadership books out there. Everyone has their own philosophy that's making them millions on how to basically be an effing human being. I'm going to write my own leadership book called "Don't be a Dick, Asshole." I think it will be the next big thing.On a serious note though, this philosophy on "seeing the objectives and goals of others" is a good one. If one must have a framework for leadership, this one is pretty simple: Focus on helping others achieve their goals and all [...]

    5. Arbinger's core ideas and concepts are powerful and have significantly impacted me over the years. That said, The Outward Mindset failed to add much to their previous works. The book introduced some new language which felt more quaint and reductive than it did informative or helpful. The book wandered and lacked focus. There were a few beautiful stories scattered throughout and I think some would still find it a worthwhile read, particularly if unfamiliar with Arbinger's other works. However, be [...]

    6. Interesting read, but the worst out of all Arbinger Institute books. It feels that topics are covered too briefly and with a lack of any science behind it. Still, it is a good food for thought for everyone to start thinking in a more outward way.

    7. Quick read but a very good thought provoking concept. We need to realize that our lives are to be lived to help others.

    8. I listened to this one and my one complaint was that the narrator didn't read any of the charts or graphs. I was so enthralled with the ideas in the book that I'm going to buy myself a copy (and then I can read the graphs) so that I can mark it up and refer back to it again and again.

    9. This small book is loaded with anecdotes used to teach the principle that "the biggest lever for change is not a change in self-belief but a fundamental change in the way one sees and regards ones connections with and obligations to others."I desire to improve how I see my connections and obligations to others. I filtered much of the information from this book through the lens of my own experience. Using Gretchen Rubin personal tendency quiz from Better Than Before and clearly seeing that I am a [...]

    10. This is a good book and reminder to get outside ourselves, think about the bigger picture, and how what we do affects others, whether in business organizations, teams, or families. When we focus on seeing others as people, listening, leading with humility, and understanding collective results, we can empower ourselves and others. Sometimes we have to be the first to change, but when we look outward we are able to improve and help others to do the same.Here are a few quotes I liked from the book: [...]

    11. I read this book thanks to Blinkist.At first I was very skeptical about this book, because it said that in order to succeed you should always strive to give to others. I believe that people are incredibly self-centered and back-stabbing, so it took time to convince me. But then, I read this passage, and realized that there is a lot of truth to this:"’s better to develop an outward mindset or one that’s focused on the needs and feelings of others. To do so, you need only concentrate on what y [...]

    12. Exceptional book! I've always known that happiness comes from looking outward toward others, but this book also relates real-life examples of how it can bring success to an organization, a company, a family.It made me stop and think about not only how I treat others but more importantly about how I view others -- do I view them as real people with needs, objectives, and challenges or merely objects in my way of doing and thinking. If my mindset changes more outwardly, my actions will naturally f [...]

    13. In comparison to the other books, The Outward Mindset does not follow one character in a workshop about the topic. Instead, the Arbinger Institute has bundled together examples they came across themselves. Whether it was the institute itself that had an inward minset or companies where they went to consult, that does not matter. No examples, from any context, are spared.What really strikes me when reading these kind of books, is that I really want to do something with this. The Arbinger Institut [...]

    14. Another good book by the Arbinger Institute. A fast read that will remind one that the responses we receive from others largely depend on what they see in us. Do we see others' needs, objectives, and challenges. Are we responding to them as a person first without expectation. What are we going to do to help others fulfill their needs, meet their objectives, and overcome their challenges.Answering these questions comes with a trap. We can be well-meaning and still inwardly focused. We are only he [...]

    15. This book is the golden rule, with stories, for 160 pages. It's not bad, but it could be related far more quickly and in greater detail. The broad strokes outline is there, along with some useless diagrams, and there are plenty of stories to illustrate the either success, or failures, of different people before and after they implement some version of The Outward Mindset.But I finished the book feeling a little bewildered, as if I was told all the reasons this is a great plan to change culture, [...]

    16. "The Outward Mindset", like Abinger's first book "Leadership and Self-Deception", is fundamentally about seeing people as people and not as objects. In this way, we encourage ownership and energise people, rather than managing them as objects. Such a model allows for better relationships and outcomes. This is illustrated through a number of illustrative real-life stories. It's a worthwhile read and the anecdotes are inspiring, and a good reminder to treat other people with care, consideration, a [...]

    17. If you have read Leadership and Self-Deception and Anatomy of Peace I don't know if you really need to read this one. It was overall kind of bland, almost like they got used to having a completely unique approach. Well, I guess it's only fair to say, though, that the principles are deceptively simple. They are fabulous principles to live by, having an outward mindset. They just presented it very vanilla, even for a 'self-help' book. It read more like a training manual or lengthy advertisement th [...]

    18. While I agree the book is more basic in nature one thing is for certain it gives you PLENTY Of real wild examples on how people missed the mark realized it and made changes for the better or worse. It consistently reminds you throughout the book to constantly look and understand others and the priority versus looking and thinking of yourself. Giving to others more than hoarding for yourself. The book may seem basic to some but most people are still having issues grasping basic concepts and apply [...]

    19. A definitely very valuable read as it teaches you how management in big corporations has evolved over time from hierarchical, individual-focused structures into collective bodies in which people work together to achieve common goals. Basically, an outward mindset is defined as a mindset that directs you to think about other people's goals along with yours in your any decision. And it is proven in practice that managers with this mindset do make their firms flourish.

    20. Very similar to Leadership and self deception. The difference mostly is this is real life stores. I enjoyed reading about the different applications. Not a lot of new material - but this material is GREAT and deserves being refreshed frequently. I would definitely recommend reading their other two books before reading this one however. I think it would be too superficial without the depth of the other two books.

    21. This was my first exposure to the Arbinger Institute. It was assigned reading as a supervisor at work. At first I rolled my eyes and thought "I totally could have written this book" I'm always trying to look at things from others' perspectives. However, I did end up enjoying the examples that were presented and some of the broader applications that were mentioned. I also appreciated the logical justification for this kind of world-view.

    22. A fantastic book about turning our focus from inward toward toward helping others. When we look outward: asking how we can help others/the organization; accepting responsibility for our own mistakes; and embracing innovative solutions to our problems we can enact changes in our lives we thought were impossible. A must read for all leaders.This book is a great companion to The Entitlement Cure. Thanks Catlett for another amazing book recommendation!

    23. Unless you super love reading long explanations when stories will get you the same information, skip this book and just read leadership and self deception. It's essentially the exact same concept except The Outward Mindset explains at length rather than letting you observe the results played out in a story. There are some good stories and examples, but the actual explaining felt really dumbed down.

    24. It's a good book. If you've read their other books (Leadership & Self-Deception, Bonds That Make Us Free, etc.) then it's not a terribly new concept. Still, they dig a bit deeper on the solution to the problem. They also provide some vocabulary to pursue getting "out of the box". It's a useful addition to the set of books they and their colleagues have written.

    25. Part two of this book outlined a simple way to become more outward. "SAM - see others, adjust efforts, measure impact." (p. 69) My greatest takeaway from both books is seeing others as people (as discussed in Leadership and Self-Deception) which enables me to treat people with the respect they deserve.

    26. This book suffers from the very thing they warn against. It offers no perspective for the reader. It is very preachy, yet lacks definitive processes whereby one can develop this "mindset". None of their books do this comprehensively because they are trying to sell their training program. The ideas seem best put forward in C. Terry Warner's book, but even there they lack cohesion.

    27. I preferred the format of the other two Arbringer books but this book’s points directly aligned with some issues I’ve been focusing on growing in so it was still enjoyable especially the stories! :)

    28. I am not a huge self-help reader, but I appreciated that this book offered such practical advice that worked for both my personal and professional life. Now I just need to be disciplined enough to go through my notes and implement.

    29. Not as good as the other Arbinger books, but the core message is great. The biggest issue I had with The Outward Mindset was how it reads like a bachelor's thesis - each paragraph focuses on a different point they want to make, with no connecting train of thought.
