Who hasn’t made a mistake in their career? You think a sale is a done deal so you forget to do the legwork required to make it a real close.
You have a social conversation with upper management who, you later learn, didn’t appreciate the gesture.
You extend a deadline to cover for a team member only to end up doing the work yourself. The list goes on.
What do you do when your mistake takes center stage? When it’s highly visible, a real fumble and has impact, not only on yourself but on your team and perhaps the organization?
