Championing Conscious Leadership | Join Our Community

What is Beyond Ego all about?

We believe that when leaders operate beyond their ego, they are better leaders. Better for the people who follow them AND the world we live in. We have seen how ego-free leaders are better able to create purpose driven and highly functional teams, that can transition beyond the fear that ego-based leadership creates and that feel psychologically safe to speak up and fully engage. We have also seen how ego free leaders create organizations that are inspired by a meaningful vision, guided by higher values and who collaborate on executing truly sustainable strategies.

This website exists to help champion the cause of leading beyond ego. It is our contribution to the corporate world. In simple terms, we aim to help as many leaders around the world as possible, to identify and move beyond their very own ego patterns. And what’s more, we welcome you to co-create it with us by sharing your stories and insights too. To immediately make this site a worthwhile place for busy leaders, we offer practical tools and methods to move beyond ego.

Once walked, the path of the Inner Compass leaves everyone transformed

Leaders today understand that too much ego can be destructive, but many lack the knowledge or awareness to identify ego patterns and move beyond them. In this book Thor Olafsson offers an experiential path towards the reader‘s own inner compass. This tool can literally transform the way they manage and lead people.

The author helps the reader solve the conflict that exists between subconscious ego-driven defence mechanisms and the inner self‘s higher purpose. Starting with self-awareness the Inner Compass path then continuously expands to include the impact on both teams and entire organisations.

Coming March 2022

Thor unravels the significance of empowering leadership when we put our ego to the side, unlocking purpose and potential which cultivates the contributions of others
