Leadership Tips: Say Sorry First


We all do it. We say something we don't exactly mean. Or we do something in the heat of the moment. We are human - it happens.

What really matters is what you do after. Do you hold onto it and want the other person to come to his or her 'senses'? Or do you lean in and open the conversation to make it right?

This week's tip is to say sorry first when something has not gone the way you intended. If you can't in the heat of the moment, go back to it when you are ready.

In the spirit of the holidays and bringing 2014 to a close, let forgiveness and compassion be the gifts you give. It sounds cliché.

However, we all know these gifts can be the hardest to give.

The bonus? It is a gift to yourself too. You can travel light.
