Ego Trap #2: Does Your Technical Expertise Trump Your Leadership Skills?

Radio Talk on Feb 07, 2015 @ 8 PM CST

Ego Trap 2 gets triggered any time a leader overvalues his technical skills, industry knowledge, or field expertise at the expense of other emotionally intelligent leadership attributes, such as flexibility, self-control, and social skill.

Business owners will often defend their EQ defects (as Steve Jobs did) by pointing to their entrepreneurial success, yet the reality is that EQ is an essential piece of the leadership pie.

A recent analysis in the Harvard Business Review confirms that technical skills alone can’t make the leader… the skills that help you climb to the top won’t suffice once you get there.

The EQ-based talents, such as being able to motivate team members, get buy-in, and lead change, are the real leadership deal makers.

Yet when a leader continues to grind out responses to team members in the role of the “expert” rather than taking on the mantle of chief motivating officer, that technical prowess can become an albatross.

About Dr. Surya

Using Quantum Physics and business research, Dr. Surya explores the correlation between the science of consciousness and patterns in the business world, to suggest innovative ways of using this wisdom to lead and succeed in a business environment that is constantly evolving at a rapid pace. Self-awareness is the awareness of the self as separate from the thoughts that are occurring at any point in time. Without self-awareness the self perceives and believes the thoughts that are occurring to be who the self is. Self-awareness gives one the option or choice to choose thoughts being thought rather than simply thinking the thoughts that are stimulated from the accumulative events leading up to the circumstances of the moment. Along with his work as an Author, Writer, Blogger and popular Internet Radio Talk Show Host, Dr. Surya is in-demand as a public speaker. Clients include small to large corporations and individuals.
