A True Leader Is One Who Is Humble Enough To Admit Their Mistakes

Leaders are called upon to make countless decisions, and sometimes things inevitably go wrong. Many leaders may see admitting a mistake as a sign of weakness, but the opposite is true in many instances.

A true leader is humble enough to admit their mistakes because acknowledging your errors can strengthen your relationships with your team. In addition, admitting your mistakes communicates in a powerful way that you believe in the relationships you’ve developed. Your team needs to know you have the trust in them and in your own leadership to say, “I’m sorry. I didn’t handle XYZ well. I take full responsibility. Here’s what we need to do to get things right and back on track…”

The sign of a superior leader is not that they avoid making mistakes; it’s that when they do, they are humble enough to admit it and learn from them.
