Ego.jpg We talk about Ego when clients experience issues in collaboration. The first step is awareness – you need to start to become aware of when you’re ego is playing up so you can stop it before it’s too late! 10 signs:

  1. You feel elevated from gossiping about other people’s flaws
  2. You find yourself in a feisty discussion and you just can’t back down until you have ‘won’ the argument
  3. You constantly compare yourself to other people who you feel are better than you (better looking, more intelligent, happier, more wealthy)
  4. You constantly compare yourself to people who you feel are not as good as you (less intelligent, lower status)
  5. You feel jealous when other people do well
  6. You talk about yourself for 10 minutes before asking another how they are
  7. You’d rather win than do your best
  8. You often sulk when you don’t win that sports game or work challenge (instead of being proud of your attempt to do your best)
  9. You set yourself impossible goals and then beat yourself up when you don’t reach them
  10. You blame others when things don’t go your way

The second step is to analyze your thoughts by asking these Three questions:

1. Do I feel superior to others?
2. Do I feel inferior to others?
3. What do I need to do to feel equal?
