Too often, the positions others take on issues depend on how they themselves will benefit from the outcome. Self-interest is normal, but taken too far can get in the way of sound decision-making and can undermine trust. Self-interest crosses the line when our advocacy for what benefits us comes before what is best for the team or organization.
I lead a group of Type professionals in healthcare
Because everyone has MD next to their name many of the group feel that were even across-the-board, which in a business sense is not correct.
We just finished a major deal where I as the leader and the person with the most business mindset spent a huge amount of time finishing the deal and designing it. We all split the money equally with no compensation assigned to my time and effort.
We’re starting a new company so now my self interest is to be appropriately paid and recognized. How do I control my own self interest without affecting the balances in the opportunity and the group. Thank you very much
