Empower yourself and your team by saying thank you

We help teams build vulnerability-based trust as the basis of becoming a high performing team. A key element to creating this type of trust is admitting when you make a mistake.

There are several potential ways to admit a mistake, and each has different implications for your team:

  1. "I made a mistake, but it wasn't my fault."  Blaming others does not contribute to a healthy team.
  2. "I made a mistake. Sorry I'm such a loser." Putting yourself down does not contribute to a healthy team.
  3. "I made a mistake. Thank you for supporting me as we recover." Taking responsibility, accepting help, and showing appreciation contribute to a healthy team.

Illustrator Yao Xiao shared some cartoons which show the impact of being thankful rather than overly apologetic.

Where would a "thank you" have a more positive impact than "I'm sorry" with your team? In your life? 

Thank you for investing time in improving your impact as a leader.
