Two Minute Drill: The Power of I’m Sorry
What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is, I’m sorry. I am here in the beautiful Downtown Branson, Missouri. I’ve always wanted to come here and I was here for the Missouri Chiropractic Physicians Association meeting – a truly great event.
Saying ‘I’m Sorry’
First and foremost, I’m sorry for not delivering my TMD to you last week. I was behind and it’s not the first time that I’ve missed. I just want you guys to know that I recognize that I missed and I’m sorry for that.
The second thing that I wanted to share about, “I’m sorry”, is that I had to apologize to Manal, who does all the work behind the scenes to make these videos and many other things that you see online.
In fact, all the things that you’re seeing online about our company, about me, she’s the one who makes it happen. I had to apologize to her as well because I’m late and I’m late a lot.
I had to apologize to her because I think those two words, “I’m sorry”, are important. Then, I have to work hard to make sure that I don’t do it again.
Today is actually Saturday, and I’m taping this early so she has it and she doesn’t have to worry about my TMD even though she always does it with literally a smile on her face or a smile emoji.
Those two words, “I’m sorry”, can go a really long way when you recognize as a leader that you’ve made mistakes, you’re owning up to them, and you’re recognizing that they’re negatively affecting other people.
If you’re recognizing any kind of mistake that you’ve made in your life, “I’m sorry”, can go a very long way, whether it’s with your coworkers, whether it’s with your friends, or your family.
So, that’s this week’s TMD, guys, from downtown Branson, Missouri.
You guys have a great week and I’ll talk to you all next week.
