I Could Be Wrong

Are you comfortable saying that as a leader?

Last week, Jimmy Fallon asked Donald Trump if he has ever apologized for anything he said. After hemming and hawing a bit, Trump couldn’t think of an example but said he absolutely would apologize if he was ever wrong.

Leadership does not mean being right 100% of the time, or never admitting our own mistakes and failures. To the contrary, good leadership requires the courage, honesty and humility to say, “I could be wrong” or “I was wrong.”
