It can be easier and more comfortable to spot the entitlement we see in others, but much more difficult to name it in ourselves. And often, when there’s an entitlement issue within our organization, it’s a top-down problem that needs to be addressed.

In this episode, Megan and Michael walk through five areas of entitlement that can creep up in all of us, and how rooting them out helps create a culture and team of people marked by gratitude, integrity, and honesty.

In this episode, you’ll discover—

  • The danger of exploitation through power
  • How our expectations of unearned benefits affects our attitudes
  • The cure for entitlement
  • Why your team member may be resistant toward certain tasks
  • The cascading effect of not honoring your word


  • Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin
