The Ex­pert

MICHELLE BENT­LEY Gen­eral man­ager, Don­ing­ton tran­si­tion and out­place­ment

The Advertiser - Careers - - Job Focus -

FESS up! Go to your man­ager and own up. If you need, take an ad­vo­cate with you. Car­ry­ing guilt, re­gret and worry will not al­le­vi­ate your con­cerns or fears. Apol­o­gise and of­fer to make amends in some way. For ex­am­ple, agree you will never re­peat the be­hav­iour, apol­o­gise per­son­ally to any­one di­rectly im­pacted by your ac­tions or of­fer to pay for any phys­i­cal dam­age done. Noth­ing is more dis­arm­ing of a po­ten­tially se­ri­ous is­sue than a sin­cere apol­ogy, con­tri­tion and re­morse. Hop­ing you won’t be found out, ly­ing, de­nials or blam­ing oth­ers are not val­ues that will be for­given or re­warded.
