DEREK GAUNT’S ‘EGO, AUTHORITY, FAILURE’ Using Emotional Intelligence to Succeed as a Leader
Nearly 50% of employees resign in order to get away from a manager whose practices they can’t stand. The ones who feel this way but decide to stay with the company become disengaged. This leads to a poor work ethic and a negative environment, all because the leadership team is unaware of the damage their methods are causing. Derek Gaunt is a 29-year law enforcement veteran who spent the majority of his career on hostage negotiation teams. He has spent over 17 years providing leadership and negotiation training to corporate and government personnel
and has now written “Ego, Authority, Failure” in an effort to continue educating those in leadership positions on his successful tactics. Gaunt has discovered that it takes more than technical skills to be an effective manager. It takes tactical empathy to create a truly productive work environment that employees actually enjoy. Gaunt demonstrates how the fundamentals of hostage negotiation, which is founded on tactical empathy, can be used to understand what it takes to lead. With the 12 simple skills outlined in the book, readers will build their trust-based influence in order to inspire their employees. The book also details eye-opening cautionary tales about inflated egos and the damage they can cause. This is a necessary read for anyone ready to get real about their capability to lead a stellar team.
