When you have a team… mistakes are a part of the game.
No matter how catchy that sounds, or how easily I say that to you… it doesn’t change how mistakes make you feel.
If you’re like me, you hate the CONSEQUENCES of mistakes. You know they will happen — because your team is human! But when you lose money, lose clients or lose trust…it’s hard to roll with the punches.
In this episode, you will learn how to navigate mistakes with your team.
In today’s episode, we discuss:
- Why CEOs would rather keep work on their plate than risk their team making mistakes
- The importance of teaching your team to try – even if it results in “failure”
- The foundation of trust, which includes responsibility, accountability and ownership
- When to develop and when to discipline your team
- The importance of pausing before you react to bad news
Here are other resources I mention:
- TED Talk – “The Power of Vulnerability,” Brené Brown
- FREE: 50 Things To Outsource to an EA
