Description

One of the start-up world's most in-demand executive coaches-hailed as the "CEO Whisperer" (Gimlet Media)-reveals why radical self-inquiry is critical to professional success and healthy relationships in all realms of life.

Jerry Colonna helps start-up CEOs make peace with their demons, the psychological habits and behavioral patterns that have helped them to succeed-molding them into highly accomplished individuals-yet have been detrimental to their relationships and ultimate well-being. Now, this venture capitalist turned executive coach shares his unusual yet highly effective blend of Buddhism, Jungian therapy, and entrepreneurial straight talk to help leaders overcome their own psychological traumas. Reboot is a journey of radical self-inquiry, helping you to reset your life by sorting through the emotional baggage that is holding you back professionally, and even more important, in your relationships.

Jerry has taught CEOs and their top teams to realize their potential by using the raw material of their lives to find meaning, to build healthy interpersonal bonds, and to become more compassionate and bold leaders. In Reboot, he inspires everyone to hold themselves responsible for their choices and for the possibility of truly achieving their dreams.

Work does not have to destroy us. Work can be the way in which we achieve our fullest self, Jerry firmly believes. What we need, sometimes, is a chance to reset our goals and to reconnect with our deepest selves and with each other. Reboot moves and empowers us to begin this journey.

Review quote

"An unusually raw and revealing exploration of how our leadership journeys are shaped by the defining moments of our childhood..." -- Adam Grant "If you want to be a better leader, or a better person, or both, read this book. A beautifully written, achingly honest account of why you can't grow a business without growing yourself." -- Angela Duckworth "This book is filled with honesty, vulnerability, and insight. This book teaches us to be brave and pursue radical self-inquiry in an effort to get to know ourselves, to be truthful with ourselves, and to love ourselves. In this pursuit Jerry shines a light on a path that defines a healthier sense of what it means to be a leader. There are countless books offering various ways to become a better leader in the business world. But this is the only book with the insight and wisdom to offer a unique perspective: to be a better leader requires us to be a better human." -- Bijan Sabet "Reboot is a tour de force - brilliant, brave and deeply emotionally resonant. It will inspire those who may sorely need, but don't seek help, to act. Reboot is powerful, penetrating and psychologically masterful. It's a gift." -- Dr. Rory Rothman
