I’m sure you’ve heard of the term “ego”, and probably people talking poorly about it. Did you know that ego in latin literally means I? It’s something I learned on our upcoming SISD with Eric Kaufmann. Eric is a leader in the conscious leadership space, and describes that conscious leaders have an ability to overcome their ego and focus on interconnectedness and the greater good. The first step to doing that is understanding how our ego is holding us back.
This is just the beginning of a fascinating conversation. We all could use a little help understanding the way our ego functions, and internalizing this point of it wants to be right, it wants to be liked, and it wants to have might is the first step.
