Our culture is proud. To some degree, this is true in all countries. Perhaps it is human nature. The concept of being wrong is not a pleasant or acceptable situation for most.
We do not want to admit or acknowledge we were wrong. The older we get the more difficult it is to admit.
Marvin Williams tells us, “There is no better test of a man’s integrity than his behavior when he is wrong.”
Rare is the leader who, when faced with the reality of being wrong, has the integrity to admit they were wrong, accept the consequences, learn from it, and correct the situation.
