There are a lot of hard situations we face as leaders. How we respond and communicate in these situations plays a significant role in the outcome, both for us and for others. We cannot control how the other person or people respond, but the way we approach and lead the conversation can make a huge difference.
In this episode of the Communication Series, we’re talking about the idea of dealing with hard situations and some principles we can follow. Specifically, we will use one example of a hard conversation we may need to have as a leader: when we have messed up.
When you mess up as a leader, it can be embarrassing. But, more importantly, it can have a negative impact on your team or the organization. While our focus in this conversation will be on what to do when you’ve made a mistake as a leader, the principles can apply to many hard situations or conversations you might face.
