THREE SIPS OF LEADERSHIP INSIGHT
TO START YOUR DAY
Being a leader does not mean being infallible. And it may seem counterintuitive, but admitting our vulnerabilities can make us stronger in the eyes of those we are privileged to lead.
Be forgiving. This one is hard, but the best leaders know that forgiveness is a tool they must master. It's how you let go and move on.
Embrace failure. To embrace failure means you're open to risk and willing to find lessons in mistakes.
Admit mistakes. When you're wrong, say so. When you mess up, apologize and do what you can to mitigate any damage.
