“Don’t hide the bad news--mistakes only get worse because employees are afraid to share bad news. Raise the flag and bring it up to your manager or exec team and own up to the mistake."
Mark Cuban, Owner of the Dallas Mavericks professional basketball team
“With every effort, I learned a lot. With every mistake and failure, not only mine but of those around me, I learned what not to do. I also got to study the success of those I did business with as well. I had more than a healthy dose of fear, and an unlimited amount of hope, and more importantly, no limit on time and effort.”
Philip Knight, Co-founder and Chairman Emeritus of Nike, Inc.
“The trouble in America is not that we are making too many mistakes, but that we are making too few.”
Geoff Woo, CEO Of Nootrobox
"Life is too short to learn from your own mistakes, so learn from other people's mistakes by absorbing information from any and all high-fidelity sources (blogs, books, conversations with domain experts). Some companies have a culture of ‘don't come to your boss with problems, come with solutions.’ It's actually horrible advice. Yes, you want smart competent problem solvers on your team, but you also want an open team dynamic where people are working together with honest open lines of communication, not a culture of fear and perfection."
John C. Maxwell, Internationally recognized leadership expert
"Seek advice, but make sure it's from someone who has successfully handled mistakes or adversities."
