HOW TO RECOVER GRACEFULLY FROM A MISTAKE!!

While most people accept that mistakes are inevitable, no one likes to make them. The good news is  that even large slipups don’t have to be career-enders, if they are handled well. Next time you make a blunder, follow these three steps to recover gracefully.

  • Fess up: Trying to hide a mistake or downplay its importance can be fatal to your career. Be candid and transparent about the mistake. Take responsibility for your part in it, and don’t be defensive.
  • Make necessary changes: Mistakes are important learning opportunities. Explain to your boss and other interested parties what you will do differently going forward.
  • Get back out there: Don’t let your errors keep you from ever taking risks again. Once the mistake is behind you, focus on future.
