THREE GOOD REA­SONS TO AD­MIT YOU HAVE FAILED

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

Many peo­ple try to shrug off

mis­steps as things that hap­pen to ev­ery­one. Al­though do­ing so might seem harm­less, there are many good rea­sons why you should ad­mit you’ve messed up. Here are three:

To con­nect with your em­ploy­ees.

While it’s true that em­ploy­ees won’t want to dis­cuss their own fail­ures, they are more likely to con­nect with lead­ers who ad­mit to theirs. Even if the spe­cific fail­ure isn’t ap­pli­ca­ble to staff, sim­ply talk­ing about it helps you con­nect.

To learn. Fail­ure is only pos­i­tive

when you learn some­thing im­por­tant from it and make the nec­es­sary ad­just­ments. If you don’t do this, you can­not learn from out­side per­spec­tives and you’re more likely to stay in de­nial. To tol­er­ate mis­takes in oth­ers. Set an ex­am­ple that fail­ure is OK.
