Speaking leader to leader, we must:
- Understand the nature of our ego
This, to a great extent, determines our natural leadership style.
- Accept the nature of our ego
This means accepting both what you like and don’t like and recognizing what is real. Acceptance comes from the heart not the head.
- Support our ego right
This is complicated and a moving target, but great results are the by-product of having the proper support. This includes having the right Programs, Processes and/or People we need to support our work and personal life so our vision and goals are alive and well.

PS: Think about it. How can you accept and support yourself if you don’t really understand yourself? We need to first to understand and accept yourself, and then to have a continuous improvement program in place to grow ourselves. It’s everyone’s job, like brushing one’s teeth (https://www.johnruh.com/brushing-your-teeth/).
