A leader with ego is fueled by what others think of them. Their bio, their education. They live to look good in the eyes of others and have lost themselves in the process. To the ego driven leader everything is about self-image.
A leader who is egoless goes beyond self image. They’re independent of good and bad opinions of others. Independent of flattery. Immune to criticism. They’re also fearless. Because the fears have come from the need for validation, approval and the need to control. Leading withought ego is feeling beneath no one and feeling above no one – equal to all.
We need more egoless leaders.
