“I was wrong…”

Being wrong about something is part of life. In leadership, it’s no different. However, many times leaders can’t — or won’t — admit they are wrong. Some have difficulty believing they could ever be wrong about anything. Others cannot admit mistakes due to their pride. Still others may simply believe it’s a sign of weakness to say, “I was wrong.” True servant leaders strive to excel and perform to the best of their ability, but also have the ability to admit when they are wrong. This not only shows humility to your co-workers, business or organization, but it also sets the example for others to follow. In doing so, you will build respect with your colleagues and those who serve under you. Strive for perfection and expect excellence from yourself and your organization… but have enough humility to admit your mistakes.
