Gain Big Credibility With Your Team, Even if You Have to Admit You Were Wrong

Here’s the truth, if you’ve made a mistake, it’s likely that your team already knows. When I think of leaders I’ve worked with who had real credibility with me, I could count on them to tell me the truth and admit their mistakes.

If you find yourself having to quickly change directions, start here.

  1. Start by thanking the team for all they’ve done.
  2. Explain what is different now.
  3. If you’ve made a mistake, admit it.
  4. Be very clear about what’s next and what you need from them.
