Apologize. Please.

Good Thoughts

I read a great article in the December issue of Entrepreneur and I said, “self, share the highlights with your network!” Here it is!

Are you surprised by the Forum Corporation’s findings that only 19% of all leader apologize regularly? Me either.

1. Studies show that leaders who apologize are perceived as stronger leaders.

2. When leaders apologize, they created a culture of credibility and accountability.

3. Apologizing provides you an opportunity to create a sense of security in the face of uncertainty.

4. Apologizing creates the platform to ask”why” in your effort to move forward.

5. Apologizing is the beginning of “moving on.”
