Reflect on the last significant conversation you had at work. It could be with one other person or in a meeting. Ask yourself, what was the most interesting or important thing I heard? If you are hard pressed to come up with something it could be that it was just a crappy encounter. Something big was supposed to be discussed or decided but instead it was just the same old b.s.
But I challenge you to think again. Can you describe the volume level of your ego? Were you thinking about how you wanted to influence the conversation? Did you walk in thinking you had the best idea? Did you have a predetermined notion of where you wanted this discussion to land? If so, your ego was cranked all the way to the max. When your mind is filled with “Me, Me, Me” there is no room for others.
