Even CEOs Get Fired
The ultimate guide for anyone moving up or trying to protect themselves in business
Jotham Stein is a Silicon Valley employment lawyer who represents entrepreneurs, C-Suite executives, board members, and senior managers, as well as less senior employees at companies of every size and type. In Even CEOs Get Fired, Jotham walks you through the best practices, common pitfalls, and sky’s-the-limit possibilities in the various stages of your career – from getting hired, to surviving an employer’s changes in control, to protecting yourself, to a voluntarily exit… to getting fired.
Each chapter focuses on a particular issue, mixing straightforward actionable advice with engaging fictional stories. If you are just starting out, in mid-career, or considering jumping into entrepreneurship, you will learn how to negotiate like a CEO. If you’re an established entrepreneur or executive already in the C-Suite, you’ll learn how to protect yourself in employment, including documents and clauses that really matter, how to maximize your negotiating leverage and much more.
