Read Cheri's latest book
This book offers an explanation of how ego controls communication channels and how we can keep ego out of our conversations. Written in the style of an “Advice Column” where readers send in their communication troubles for guidance, this book offers practical ways to deal with issues that arise around day-to-day communications. Whether it’s a personal problem with communication or communication difficulties with another this book breaks down the process of ego interference and offers a way to restore connection in a humorous and compassionate style.
