After 30 years of facilitating transformative business culture change and 17 years experience in the Royal Marines – where leadership is paramount – I am a strong advocate for egoless management. Egoless leaders are the ones that stand out. Here’s why...
When big egos clash in the workplace, or we feel we need to silence ourselves to avoid confrontation with someone who has exaggerated self-confidence, it will inevitably negatively impact a company’s workplace culture, create stress and impact creativity and productivity.
Egos represent our sense of self-importance, worth and self-esteem created through our lives and moulded on the impact of our experiences – but good leaders don’t require gratitude, self-promotion, or ego-stroking.
Instead, while the best leaders have a clear vision, they opt to build on and use the capability of their team, welcome input from all stakeholders, and look for new opportunities to grow or do better.
