Publisher's Summary

In Ego vs EQ, Jen Shirkani shares strategies for using emotional intelligence (EQ) as a primary prevention tool to avoid career derailment. The executive leadership failure rate is high: two in five CEO’s fail in the first 18 months on the job and two thirds of business’ will disappear just a decade after founding.
This book teaches you how to identify the most common reasons for leadership ineffectiveness, including the cascading consequences they create, and learn tools to prevent them.
Drawing on real-life anecdotes from the author’s 20 years of coaching and consulting, Ego vs EQ provides research and case study examples in an easy-to-understand, practical format and is ideal for anyone currently in an executive leadership role, including business owners, or those wanting to become a dynamic future leader.

I binge listened to the book in a single day and then reached out to her on Monday for 1:1 C-level coaching. Where were you 14 years ago when I started my company!
