It’s On Me
It’s human nature to minimize our mistakes. It is also human nature to make them. None of us are invulnerable. None of us are Superman, and pretending to be kills teams.
Trust lies at the heart of a functioning, cohesive team and can only happen when team members are willing to be completely vulnerable with one another. This includes saying things like “I’m sorry” or “Your idea was better than mine” or “That one is on me.”
Admitting mistakes helps others trust our character, following through on our promises allows others to trust our competence. Both are critical components in building trust.
And building trust is the first step in building a cohesive team.
