Today’s episode is with Shayne Hughes and we talk about Ego. He believes that ego is single-handedly working sabotage our businesses every day. His expertise in creating cultures of open communication and collaboration has lead to substantial improvements in organizational and personal performance for such clients as Fairchild Semiconductor, NASA, Sandia National Laboratories, Shell Oil, and Encore Capital. He is also experienced in the complex dynamics of family businesses.

Shayne and I discuss his new book Ego Free Leadership and ways to end the unconscious habits that can hijack businesses. I love the unique style this book is structured as it’s told from “two lively first-person perspectives.” The stories, all true, are woven quite effectively to help illustrate each of the authors’ points. If you’re looking to break some bad and unconscious leadership habits, it’s definitely a book you should check out!
