Chris Smith, writing for The High Calling, has a moving piece with the title “When Leaders Mess Up.” This is a pointed and worthy reminder for those of us who are leaders in some capacity, and that’s almost all of us. This is a good word for bosses, teachers, government officials, academic experts, doctors, lawyers, parents, and . . . well, you name it. Chris’ article challenges our tendency to hide, to defend, and even to lie in order to cover up our mistakes.
Thanks, Chris, for this fine reminder. I need it today.
