We all want to be right, but of course we are sometimes wrong. The advice from Dale Carnegie almost a century ago is as good today as its ever been. I welcome back Bonni Stachowiak to explore why when you are wrong, you should admit it quickly and emphatically.
Guest: Bonni Stachowiak
Dale Carnegie said almost 100 years ago in How To Win Friends and Influence People, “When you’re wrong, admit it quickly and emphatically.”
- My truth
- Your truth
- Our shared truth
- The actual truth
Three benefits you get from admitting you are wrong:
- You advance immediate progress on organizational goals
- You drive future innovation and creativity
- You inspire people to move forward
The best marriages are not without conflict. The best teams and leaders and not without error.

I’m looking to chat with about 10 people to do a little R&D for my Course1 project for #CFLshow community. Contact me if both of the below are true for you:
- You’ve been a manager for less than 2 years.
- You work for a company or organization of more than 25 people.
Check out Lift.do from episode #109 and let me know a daily habit you’d like to take action on. We may begin a community plan for a new daily habit when the founder of Lift.do joins us on the show in just a few weeks.
