Leadership – Learning From Our Mistakes

If you are in the position of leading others, one thing that can be said with certainty is that you will make mistakes.

While it might not always be comfortable to make mistakes, the truth is that they arise. So how do you bounce back from mistakes?

  1. Acknowledge that things have not gone as well as you would like.
  2. Make a note of what worked and what did not work. The chances are there are still many positives to take from the experience.
  3. Identify what you would do differently next time.
  4. Move on. You cannot change the past but, with the right outlook, can hugely influence the future.
