How Your Big Ego Can Actually Help Your Coworkers by Gwen Moran

Gwen recently wrote an interesting article in Fast Company defending the poor ego. Although many people think I demonize the ego in favor of more emotionally intelligent behaviors, I do agree that having a healthy ego is critical to executive success.

From the book, Ego vs EQ:

"When properly balanced with EQ, ego can be an important pillar to success (in the form of self-confidence, assuredness, conviction, clear decision making, and more)."

Although I would have probably titled the article "How Your Healthy Ego Can Actually Help Your Coworkers" I do like how Gwen supports the value of ego in executive leadership.
