As any great leader will tell you, they have made many mistakes along the way. They will admit that it was the collective insight from bad decisions that taught them invaluable lessons – and how to see opportunities in everything and anticipate the unexpected more quickly.

They call this wisdom, and many leaders lack it – because they are too proud to recognize mistakes as valuable learning moments for themselves and others.
