Leadership Issues: “I Made a Mistake!”
Smart as you are, it’s bound to happen. Challenges in the workplace are only getting more complex, and whether it’s an issue with staff, products, or service delivery – not owning up to it can be costly. Learn the importance of acknowledging when it’s “your day to be human” and the importance of allowing others to be human too. Not standing up to a mistake doesn’t make you any more right, and it costs you credibility and respect of those affected. Handled well, acknowledging mistakes can contribute the health of an organization, as well as provide greater opportunity to set things right.
