Tall Poppy Syndrome

There’s a tall poppy in every workplace . They’re the people who seem to have it all. Whether it’s looks, talent, success or simply they got what you deserve. Resentment can soon build and, left unchecked, turn into abject misery.

So before you let yourself get caught in the trap… learn how to handle your own ego

“True heroism is remarkably sober,  very undramatic.  It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever the cost, but the urge to serve others whatever the cost.”Arthur Ashe

The Ego Challenge

If you’re feeling hidden in the middle of the pack and perhaps resenting others achievements or apparent success, then maybe it’s your ego getting in the way.Instead, this week, go and find that individual and talk with them.
