WATCH this Monday Moment video on leadership communication and what errors can be made in your message.

  • Assess what happened (really, not imagined).
  • Realistically look at what your part was or your contribution. It ALWAYS takes two to tango
    so don’t skip this part.
  • Apologize for your actions or words or sentiment that was offensive, overdone, or hurtful.

Now, if what you’re going to say is “I’m sorry you feel that way” please don’t bother and do a quick search for “Does Your Boss Act Like a Narcissist?” and “Leadership Accountability” topics. (Or even check out this article from Inc. about THE F word you don’t want to use. LOL) Each topic will appear in future Monday Moments, but if the need is urgent, these will help in the meantime.

When errors happen and you’re the boss, the fastest way to make progress and actually move on is to own your part of the equation and work on doing better together.

I’m Monica Wofford and that’s your Monday Moment.
