Ego is not your Amigo with Cy Wakeman

Episode 36: In this episode, Jon spoke with Cy Wakeman, NY Times bestseller author, and drama researcher, to talk about how Ego is Not Your Amigo. Cy had some insightful comments on how Internal Auditors can best handle EGO-driven discussions (be a thought partner, up the support but don’t lower the standard!). We also discussed low vs. high accountability individuals and what leaders can do to best attract high-accountability talent. Lastly, Cy had some notes on why leaders should stop complaining (it leads to more negative thinking, not problem-solving!). We hope you enjoy it!
