We're only human...
So many songs popped into my head then, The Killers, Human League, but you're not here to hear me sing or find out about my taste in music. This week we are all about owning your s**t as a leader.
Turns out, as if we didn’t know it already, but we are all humans. We make mistakes. And I don’t just mean colossal, crisis management type mistakes. I mean the times we get things wrong, make a bad decision or an error of judgement. As leaders we are not always going to get it right. For me, it’s how we recognise and handle this, that really matters.
One of my biggest reflections from the conversation we had in this episode is about handling our mistakes as humans too. Owning up to our mistakes, apologising (if that’s appropriate), having adult conversations to understand the impacts of our actions on others and take the actions required to get back on the right track.
