The following great quote of Jim Collins from Good to Great illuminates us on the fact that even though great leaders may have ego they channelize their ego in the right direction keeping in mind a larger objective.
“Level 5 leaders channel their ego needs away from themselves and into the larger goal of building a great company. It’s not that Level 5 leaders have no ego or self-interest. Indeed, they are incredibly ambitious–but their ambition is first and foremost for the institution, not themselves.”Adopted from Jim Collins’s book Good to Great
This leadership masterclass proves beyond doubt that intentions make or break great leaders.
