High-level executives often allow their inflated egos to undermine common sense and smart decision making. According to consultant Jen Shirkani, you can find the remedy for that by tapping into your EQ, or emotional intelligence. She explains how ego-driven leaders can sidestep the eight most dangerous traps that undermine success and learn to heed their EQ instead. Shirkani doesn’t cover new ground, but getAbstract believes that senior executives can benefit from her helpful information and solid advice.
In this summary, you will learn
- What the three components of emotional intelligence (EQ) – “self-awareness, empathy and self-control” – require;
- How to follow your EQ instead of your ego; and
- What methods you can use to avoid slipping back into egotistical behaviors.
