Mistakes & How to Recover

Amy Gallo reminds us that "mistakes, even big ones, don't have to leave a permanent mark on your career.  In fact, most contribute to organizational and personal learning; they are an essential part of experimentation and a prerequisite for innovation.  So don't worry: if you've made a mistake at work, — and, again, who hasn't? — you can recover gracefully and use the experience to learn and grow."

Amy's "Principles to Remember" include:  Do "Accept responsibility for your role in the mistake" and Don't "Be defensive or blame others."
