Could Mastering the Ego Be a Learning Executive Solution?
One might think that the opposite of being egotistical is being humble. Marcum said not. “We’re finding that you can have too much ego, and the opposite would be too little ego. If you notice the four signs, usually showcasing brilliance and defensiveness are too much ego. Often seeking acceptance and comparison is a function of too little ego. What’s in the middle, the thing that balances all of it is this notion of humility. Humility is a scary word because it conjures up these images of weak, meek, and in business it seems like that’s a concept that won’t fly. In order to bring balance to ego we need to understand humility more. It is a strength, not a weakness. Humility is a very strong characteristic. It’s not meekness. It seems to be misunderstood. Humility is about pairing. Humble people are extremely confident and ambitious. They’re not weak. They’re not subservient, and they’re not shy, quiet and afraid to speak up.”
