A few years ago I made a fool of myself. I misrepresented some information and put a leader I looked up to in a bad spot. Two weeks later, I was called out. Boy did I feel like a douche.
Luckily for me, this gentlemen was kind enough to walk me through the art of a sincere apology.

As a business person, leader, influencer, or employee it's likely you will have your fair share of blunders. We're broken people. But even then, we must learn the skills to step into the pain, to feel how they feel, and to come to a place where our hearts authentically desire to mend what was broken. The video below, though a bit humorous, did a fantastic job of cover these basics.
