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 eighteen months on the job and two thirds of businesses 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 the tools to prevent them.

Drawing on real-life anecdotes from the author’s twenty years of coaching and consulting experience, 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.
