In this eye-opening book, two dynamic business consultants explain how untethered egos can undermine success in business, and show readers how to find the most productive balance between confidence and arrogance.
Ego is the most pervasive challenge in life and in business. The key to great leadership is understanding exactly what ego is. Most people believe ego is negative, but it is a healthy, necessary element of our personalities. Ego provides self-confidence to make the most of our unique talents and traits but when it becomes excessive, it has a harmful effect on our relationships and work. Finding the right balance of ego is pivotal to success in and outside of work.
The key distinction between a good and a great leader is how humility affects their ambition. In Egonomics, authors Dave Marcum and Steven Smith show readers not only how to balance their ego, but how humility can help them succeed.
