Publisher's Summary

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.

Just not my thing....

Jerry Colonna is obviously a well accomplished VC entrepreneur/Coach but this just isn't my style. The whole answer a question with a question thing is a bit of a cop out. "Great humans make great leaders" doesn't seem to be that big of a revelation to me.

I'm probably being a bit too hard on the book. I was very excited to read/listen and it's just kind of left me feeling "meh". I know our childhood plays a much larger role in our development than most people probably believe, but he seems to spend an inordinate amount of time on it. A tree he climbed when he was 10 was chopped down and he's still crying about it 40 years later?!?!?!?! However, I'm kind of an a-hole. I'll re-listen in a few months and give it another chance.

An empathetic and vulnerable look at leadership

Jerry Colonna’s work is a gift to anyone looking to become a more thoughtful, wholesome leader. He challenges us to understand our past so that we can move forward with a new story.

You won’t get a tactical roadmap to becoming a leader in 90 days or less. Instead, you’ll get something more meaningful, more nuanced. Something a bit more like leadership itself.

Most important book of my adult life

When listening substitute self for leader and self for business. It will change you, help you be your best self. Amazing.

do not waste your time terrible book

I thought this was going to be a business book about leadership and it turns out to be the author's story of himself growing up. Yes he has some inner moments but nothing to really learn here. plus he whispers through the entire book which makes it equally annoying

Absolutely terrible

Please spare yourself this piece of garbage. The nonsense he preaches is mind boggling. The author should ask himself if he truly is in a position to give advice to people. He preaches but he himself is ignorant.
