Apologize to Mend, Improve, Bond

An apology is the superglue of life. It can repair just about anything. ~Lynn Johnston

Even though you are a leader, you will not be perfect.  You will say the wrong thing, make the wrong decision or make a careless mistake.  Making mistakes followed by a sincere apology makes you stronger because it allows people to move on from the hurt and begin to start a discussion on improvement or repairing. Even if you don't think you did anything wrong but there is something amis start with an apology.  The focus is then taken away from any pain onto "what happened and how does this not happen again?"  When others see you, the leader, want to right wrongs they will feel a strong bond and willingness to follow.

1. Close your eyes
2. Breathe
3. Empty your mind
4. As thoughts come in, acknowledge and whisk them away
5. Focus on your breathing
6. Think about the affirmation:

"I will apologize with sincerity to mend, improve, and bond."
