Successful leaders are rarely perfect people. In fact, most are flawed – just as we all are – and who at one time or another made mistakes. The difference is that these leaders found a way to overcome their mistakes. They did not get involved in a self-created pity party; they learned from their mistakes and had the ability to ‘climb above’ them.
More importantly, they found ways to share their newly learned knowledge with others in hopes of keeping them from making the same mistakes.
