Learning from one’s mistakes is very important
It’s not wrong or unforgivable to make mistakes which are genuine errors of judgement or based on miscalculation. It is however foolish not to learn from mistakes made, ensuring there’s no repeat. Leaders also need to allow for the mistakes that might be made by subordinates and those within the organisation. Rather than coming down hard and acting like a tonne of bricks, supporting staff members and pointing out a better and different way of carrying out tasks will be useful.That will also help staff appreciate you and grow the respect they feel for you as a leader. But be where you don’t dismiss what they’ve done that might be Rather, with empathy support the person and make them feel valued.
