Publisher's Summary

"I've got a solution," Encore's CFO tells Brandon, "but it's unorthodox". It's 2005, and Brandon Black has just been promoted to CEO of Encore Capital, a company struggling to navigate an increasingly difficult business environment. Faced with a rapidly declining stock price and low workplace morale, Brandon knows he needs change - and fast. Following his CFO's advice, he and his executive team start working with Learning as Leadership (LaL) and its president, Shayne Hughes. Through their partnership, Encore's executive team learns to root out the unproductive ego habits that undermine collaboration and performance.
As they instill these more effective behaviors throughout the organization, Encore begins to solve problems collectively, prioritize resources without infighting, and focus on the initiatives with the greatest strategic value. When the financial crisis of 2008-09 forces 90 percent of its competitors out of business, Encore thrives, with its profits increasing by 300 percent and its stock price by 1,200 percent. Told from two lively first-person perspectives, Ego Free Leadership brings listeners along for Encore's incredible success story. They'll see a CEO overcome his unconscious resistance to modeling the change he wants in his team and discover a time-tested road map for eliminating the destructive effects of the ego in teams and organizations.

Do not let your ego tame you

How our ego unconsciously negatively affects our perception and actions. How to find when our ego got hurt and step back to understand why to react consciously instead of in defense. How to get more personal connection and understanding through sharing own vulnerabilities.
Well illustrated on thoughts, feelings and decisions made by CEO of financial corporation and comments from his coach.
