The Arbinger Institute is a global training and consulting firm that helps individuals, teams, and organizations achieve breakthrough results by shifting from the default self-focus we call an inward mindset to the others-inclusive focus of an outward mindset.
THE OUTWARD MINDSET
Arbinger’s newest book builds on 35 years of work by relating the true and compelling stories of multiple leaders and organizations as they live and apply the powerful principles of an “outward mindset,” then sharing simple yet profound guidance and tools to help readers and their organizations shift to an outward mindset.
LEADERSHIP AND SELF-DECEPTION
With more than two million copies sold, this book shares the story of a man facing challenges on the job and in his family. It exposes the fascinating ways we can blind ourselves to our true motivations and unwittingly sabotage our own efforts to achieve success and happiness, then illuminates profound, even counterintuitive ways to transform our work and relationships.
THE ANATOMY OF PEACE
This book has been #1 on the Amazon Best Sellers list in the War & Peace category and in the top five in the Conflict Resolution & Mediation category for 11 years running. It explores questions like, "What if, in our conflicts with others, there is something we want more than solutions? What if, individually and collectively, we systematically misunderstand the causes of our conflicts? And what if, therefore, we unwittingly perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve?"
Mindset Audit - Over thirty years of intensive research, The Arbinger Institute has demonstrated that every organization operates somewhere along a continuum from Inward to Outward Mindset. Since behaviors drive results and mindset drives behaviors, the prevailing mindset in an organization has profound impact on an organization’s performance and culture. Your answers to 10 questions will suggest where your organization might be along the Mindset Continuum from Inward Mindset to Outward Mindset.
Leadership Assessment - The Arbinger Leadership Assessment is an eighteen-question instrument that assesses your leadership practices and effectiveness. This instrument is based on Arbinger’s extensive experience working with leaders for over three decades.
“Arbinger had a remarkable accelerator effect. It radically changed the way we interfaced as a team. As a result we solved problems and moved the business forward in a way that was previously impossible.”
Division President | Raytheon
“We have found in Arbinger a sustainable framework to achieve a high performance culture that promotes and sustains spontaneous collaboration and self-accountability while focusing on organizational results. Since May 2014, the Arbinger consultant has been most instrumental in helping our leaders and their team members embed Arbinger’s framework and tools into their work practices. These Arbinger ideas are helping us both on a professional and personal level. It’s a journey, worth travelling.”

“After decades of executive leadership in senior management positions, I’ve finally found in Arbinger what I consider to be the best means of improving every measure of success.”

“As we support families and neighbourhoods to address their difficulties, Arbinger has been a most helpful resource in facilitating cooperation among people. It encourages thoughtful listening, empathy and provides a clear pathway out of conflictual situations. As a result, Arbinger has helped bring about peaceful resolutions and purposeful plans not just for the participants of our programmes but among our staff and volunteers as well. It is definitely a framework that strengthens our peace-making and community building abilities..”
Executive Director | Beyond Social Services
“Arbinger delivered immediate, tangible results. Where we had been highly dysfunctional and totally unproductive, there is now honesty, individual accountability, and collaboration. I have no other word for it than ‘remarkable’.”

“Arbinger is the answer to the question you didn’t know to ask and the way forward on the path you didn’t know you should follow. They provide opportunities for deep introspection that help improve self-awareness, strengthen relationships, increase results, reinforce accountability, and reduce conflict.”
Former Commissioner of the Public Debt | U.S. Department of the Treasury
“Because staff now work in an Arbinger way, we have achieved a 10-fold increase in 5-Star ratings—the highest government rating for nursing homes—among facilities we acquired in the last 4 years. This is particularly remarkable considering that before acquisition, the average Star rating was below 3.”
