How often, when we encounter a problem, have we caught our ‘ego’ coming in hard and fast driving our reactions and actions? It becomes exhausting because we continually place ourselves as the center of the action. We are actually ‘creating drama’ , seeing ourselves in the role of the victim. We then become victims of our micromanaging boss, demanding colleagues, anyone and everyone around us who is not moving in tune with us and our needs. In this thought provoking and pragmatic talk, Cy Wakeman, challenges us all to ‘ditch the drama’, take our ‘ego’ out of the picture and reframe what is ‘actually’ happening. When we do that, we are able to refocus our energy and talent. Not only do we find more creative solutions to our world and the challenges we face, but in doing so live happier and more productive lives. Cy has three questions and three take always, that will get you reframing, and getting your ego to take a backseat to reality.
