Ego is a word that we often associate with vanity and selfishness. And, perhaps, a recent former president. However, there is more to ego than overinflated confidence. Sometimes, if it’s understood, ego can be used for good.
“Your ego is showing.” is a phrase uttered when someone is getting a little too full of themselves. Or in other words, a little too egotistical.
Ego, on the other hand, is simply your sense of self. Everyone has one and as long as we’re cognizant of it, we can use it to be inspirational leaders, collaborative team members, and overall good humans.
The pretty side of ego is often overlooked, so join us as we go beyond the ills of swollen egos and how we can harness our own ego to capture big ideas and uplift those around us.
