Think back to the last great idea you had. Did the idea belong to you? Or was it just an idea? I believe that if our perspective is the latter we will do a better job of making decisions for our organization.
If we detach ego from our ideas, we’ll naturally seek the best solution rather than working to validate our own opinions/beliefs/ideas.
This mindset means thinking globally and putting company goals above those of our department, branch and self.
It also means being a ‘servant leader’; working for your team, not the other way around.
”True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.” -C.S. Lewis
