“If you mess up, fess up.”
—Kevin Kelly, founding executive editor of Wired magazine
It Takes Two to Tango.
Take a moment to look at the health and work-ability of your closest and most important relationships.
Examine how things are going with your spouse, partner, children, siblings, and friends. How about your connections with colleagues, customers, and others at work?
Virtually all of my coaching clients place communications and improving relationships at or near the very top of their most important and urgent priorities. Among the tips and techniques offered in countless books, workshops, and seminars is the good old-fashioned sincere apology.
Where and with whom have you stepped on a toe or two recently?
What role and what level of responsibility do you have in what is and isn’t working?
Where would fessing up to a mess you made or helped create make the biggest difference?
When will you take the necessary action to clean things up?
Please reply to this post and let me know how things go.
