There are so many bad decisions I have made and have been witness to in my professional life and my personal life. One particular that I remember is a unit commander who thought he had an inside scoop on who was promoted before the official results came out. We did a small celebration congratulating them and later found out he was wrong. It is not so much that he tried to recognize those working hard; it is his response. When he found out he was wrong, he simply said…”oops” not “sorry guys, I stepped out on a limb and was wrong” only oops. We all make bad decisions, it is what we do afterwards that will impact our relationship with those on our teams.
