Usually when we talk about leadership, we talk about achievements.
Great leaders are the ones who take businesses, movements, countries, science to great heights.
However, this view is incomplete.
Especially in times like these.
To me a great leader not only basks in the glory of success but also takes responsibility of failures.
Taking responsibility or ownership is not an exercise in self-pity or self-flagellation but comes from a sense of humility and a deeper desire to get better, make things better for others.
If you are unable to acknowledge failure or a problem, how can you go about making things better?
Taking responsibility for your actions, especially failures, is one of the hardest things to do.
What do you think?
What do you do in the face of failure?
What do you expect a leader to do when facing failure?
