About the Book

This download is an except from Jen Skirkani's latest book.

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 read, 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.

About the Author

Jen Shirkani wrote Ego vs EQ to help leaders help themselves. Using her experience as an executive coach, she identified the common traps that set senior executives and business owners up for failure. From thinking technical skills trump leadership skills, to not letting go of control, to losing touch with the front line experience she watched first-hand how executives struggled with staying grounded in a feedback desert. She takes the science of EQ (emotional intelligence) and brings it to practical application for the senior executive or business owner who not only wants to survive, but thrive.

Jen brings relevant and practical examples to life in her speaking events and is as comfortable speaking at large venues as she is with intimate groups for a corporate retreat. She provides insight into human dynamics in a humorous and engaging way. She presents the topic of emotional intelligence from a leadership perspective filled with practical strategies and immediately useable tips. Jen has worked with organizations from the Fortune 50 to family-owned companies helping leaders leverage the power of EQ. She was born and raised in Southern California and holds a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership.
