MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
A healthy support network is beneficial if it has authentic trusting relationships, has a varied range of perspectives, and follows the 'give and take rule'.
Never try to cover up or blame others for what went wrong. If you messed up, admit it and own it.
Admitting your mistakes earns you the respect of those you lead and makes your leadership human.
You can only learn from a mistake after you admit you've made it.
Don't start blaming other people (or the universe) for the things that go wrong, because you distance yourself from any possible lesson.
Humor is a great psychological tool to get and keeping people on your side. Use it wisely, and use it often—especially when you screw up.
The next time you find yourself staring out at a crowd of people who just saw you make a huge mistake—and they know it was a mistake—don’t ignore it. Don’t try to cover it up. Don’t nervously apologize over and over. Use humor.
