#TuesdayT: Apologizing

Challenging truths for life and leadership


This week's truth is simple to understand, but hard to implement:


Leaders genuinely apologize when they screw up.


For example, I used sarcasm yesterday in a meeting to make a point. While I still believe in the point I was making, my sarcasm embarrassed another leader in the room.


In retrospect, I should have not used sarcasm and had a private conversation with the leader. In essence, my behavior was abusing the power the position gives me.


I was 100% wrong in doing this.


Thus, I needed to apologize.


So, today I sought out this individual and apologized to them.


This experience reminded me that I need to choose my words wisely. And when I don't, I need to own my actions.


I need to apologize.


Is there someone you need to apologize to?
