A person’s ego can either help or hinder that person at work. Susan K. Wehrley’s sixth book, “Ego at Work,” gives examples of more than 20 tools, through four true stories, to help harness ego in the workplace.
Readers will learn how to navigate their way out of thoughts of fear and frustration, which cause stress and can put a barrier between people and their goals and happiness.
Wehrley, a BizTimes Milwaukee columnist, demonstrates how the fear-based mindset of the ego is destructive and keeps people stuck. She has chosen the anniversary date of 9/11 to launch the book because she believes this event was rooted in the mindset of the ego; as was the aftermath of our long-held fear-based reaction.
Wehrley’s book leads the reader though common workplace scenarios and demonstrates how the ego can tear apart cultures and cause personal damage if not kept in check.
“Ego at Work” is available on www.800ceoread.com for $14.99.
