We all have egos to some degree, but when it pertains to business, over-extended egos can restrict growth. Knowledge and expertise are key to growth, but taming your ego and removing a sense of entitlement can take your company to the next level.
Effective leaders know when to play to their strengths and also surround themselves with talented people who are better than them. De-emphasize where an idea came from, instead shift the focus to ensuring great ideas are being presented and executed by your team.
Practicing humility as a team will be vital to long-term success.
