I am sorry. 

just say it and keep moving … a sign of self respect…

Consultants Mind

I said this to five different people on Friday. An overly curt email. Late for a meeting. Over-stepping bounds, a little disrespectful of the staffing process. Not bringing an extra copy of a document for signing. Basically, a day of “humble pie”.

My take. When you are doing good work, important work, moving fast, shaking things up, things will get broken. Did I do any of those things to do harm? No. Was any harm done long term? No. Do I regret some of my actions. Yes, slightly. Am I going to brood on them, no.

I made 3 of the apologies directly and publically. I will make my rounds on Monday and apologize to 2 more people. Maybe I am superficial, but I find apologizing the fastest, most effective way to move on. I make mistakes. I am sorry. Let’s trust each other and keep doing good work.
