We all have “egos,” or our standard self operating system. We often go about our tasks so quickly, or when want something to work so much, that we fail to see ourselves fully. We interact without having awareness of the impact we have on others—both beneficial and unhelpful. COL (retired) Laterza and Krystal discuss the imperative of leaders to understand and manage their egos, and for senior leaders to help those they lead improve their self awareness. His leadership philosophy underscores this principle. Leadership = character X competence. We all could use training and coaching for us to match our ideal character with our external presence. Today’s podcast offers guidance on what this looks like in realistically at work.
