Event description

Description

Please join us at Cloudability for a special pre-book launch with Jerry Colonna. Doors will open at 4:30 with a casual reception. The reading will begin at 5:30. Because we want to support the book and contribute to first-day sales, the organizers are asking that attendees pre-purchase a copy of Reboot: Leadership and the Art of Growing Up which can be found at https://www.reboot.io/book/ . Bring your proof of purchase to gain admission to the event.


When striving to kick-start your enterprise or advance your career, most of us can excel simply by moving fast, doing more, or striving for the next hurdle. But when you’re called upon to lead, it’s time to face your inner challenges, and grow into your full self. To get there, you might need a reboot.

Jerry Colonna will read from his debut book Reboot, revealing the critical links between growing up and becoming a leader, and why both depend upon radical self-inquiry. His insights can inspire any leader to evolve, or guide anyone in search of meaningful personal growth.

The event will conclude with a fireside chat with Jerry where he’ll offer a rare window into why his “Reboot Bootcamps” are renowned for making founders and CEOs cry, helping leaders make peace with their inner demons, and identify some behavioral patterns that have helped them to succeed, yet can hinder their ability to lead.

With a no-holds-barred approach, and a blend of Buddhism, Jungian therapy, and entrepreneurial insight, Colonna shows how you can finally discard your baggage, find meaning, build healthy interpersonal bonds, and become the leader you were meant to be.
