Too often, when we talk about rape and sexual assault, we just address the victims, discussing whether to hold them responsible, provide them with support, tell them it wasn’t their fault, or warn them of future dangers. If the culprits come up, it will be to talk about what we did with them after the occurrence and to (correctly) hold them accountable for their conduct. Nevertheless, if we want to put an end to sexual assaults, it is our responsibility as parents, educators, and citizens to engage in a much more challenging conversation with our sons. No matter your position at the company, it’s critical to take ownership of your work—and any mistakes you make. Don’t “make excuses for things” when something has gone wrong. In fact, Taylor mentioned research she had done in which she found that 91% of employees said they were happier at work when their managers recognized mistakes. Please do not apologize too much. In particular, if you have a tendency to automatically apologize to others for both your faults and theirs, doing so could cause others to have a negative opinion of you. I don’t mean to imply that you shouldn’t take ownership of your team’s and your own mistakes. Such behavior is typical of weak leaders. As opposed to this, I believe that good leaders earn a lot more respect by taking full responsibility for both their own actions and those of their team. However, don’t apologise for things you can’t change, things you have authority over, or qualities about you that define you.
