Ego at work

"If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue.  Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge.  Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time.  It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up."  – Deepak Chopra

Understanding the role of the ego and how to work with it is a key trait that effective leaders possess. Our ego is our judging mind, our comparing mind, our negative mind.  It can be self-limiting and destructive if we allow it to rule our actions.  However, we can learn to recognize our egoic patterns and overcome them with awareness.  Awareness and understanding are key traits of successful managers and leaders.  Our Management Training Institute offers a training on Emotional Intelligence that explores this innovative yet essential topic for the modern leader.
