Creative Leadership, Ego and the Conscious Society

Yup!  There is a distinct difference between confidence and competence.

The irony is, we’re more likely to buy in to confidence than we are to competence – it’s a genetic thing.

Despite this, inflated egos come at the expense of innovation, the essence of creativity.  Therefore, the extremes of confidence foster “creative destruction” – leaving room for new, less aggressive and more strategic personalities to rise in their wake.

Boom and bust; ebb and flow.  It’s like a big, repetitive circle.

Makes you think, doesn’t it?
