Overcoming a CrisisBlog / Produced by The High Calling
"In my experience, no one is always happy, excited, or hopeful. We may not always see progress. At times we see things slipping backwards," writes Jack Davis. In a Linked2Leadership blog post about managing the inevitable crises we face, he notes that one of the keys to leadership excellence is admitting mistakes honestly--and quickly. Doing so allows you to extract wisdom from the mistake.
"Laugh them off, brush them off, learn the lesson, and move on to your next (even greater) accomplishment!" he encourages. "You see, pain births a willingness to change. No matter what has to change around you, the first thing to change is YOU."
He also lists several pracitical steps to transform mistakes into opportunities.
