20. Leaders make mistakes — and make no bones about it.
Yes they do and they do not like to make them. Ultimately they realize that making mistakes is a prerequisite of learning. Learning is at the very core of effective leadership. So a great leader gets over his ego quickly and goes into the learning process. I wrote two articles on this subject. One was a while back and can be found on my other blog material leadership. The other is in the email coaching series that is given to you when you sign up for the mailing list here on the site.
Challenge: Read the two articles on making mistakes and follow the process advice given there. Of course you will have to sign up for the mailing list for #2.
