Check Your EgoIt seems to be contradictory to many people, but a real leader isn’t a vain and egotistical person. Nobody listens or follows this kind of person except out of fear. That is the difference between a leader and a dictator.
Remember to check your ego every time that you need to use your leadership skills. Be ready for criticism, because many people think that the best way to become your best friend is by bringing your mistakes to your attention just in case you aren’t aware of them.
Also, be prepared to serve and to work to make other people’s lives better instead of yours. In theory, they think that your life is already perfect anyway.
Bear in mind that your needs come in second place.
