donhornsby's curator insight, February 6, 2015 8:50 AM

A helpful and thoughtful look at how you can make mistakes a part of your career. Learn from them and grow from them.

 

(From the article): When turning mistakes into opportunity, the first step is accepting accountability. Too often, when projects or ideas don’t go as planned, managers will look around for someone or some occurrence out of their control on which to lay the blame. Strong leaders can admit when (and where) they were wrong.


“This is a difficult thing to do,” admits Hilary. “People have a tendency to assign blame to others and high performance to their own actions.” By accepting mistakes, executives can show they have a willingness to try new things. They are able to emphasise lessons learned and implement steps to prevent the mishap happening again. In this way they are able to turn mistakes into a positive, and show superiors what they are capable of.
