Whew! This is something most of us should take to heart. Often the first thing we do when something goes wrong is look who is to blame. We all go into CYA mode and precious time is lost. Of course, we need to figure out what went wrong and it often leads to a “who”; however, the problem still exists. And almost always, the person who messed up wasn’t being malicious, they simply made an error in judgement. instead of coaching them back to where they need to be we march them throughout the unit in a metaphorical walk of atonement. Let’s focus our energy on solving the problem, growing the individual and moving forward as a team.
