I want to take the high road when things happen at work. I want the other party to know it wasn’t my mistake, but I will fix it. Or, in other situations not being critical of a decision that someone else made that went awry and has to be fixed (by me). Or, late submissions past the deadline.
My thought is, that is a reflection on me, I will fix it or make it right, but I do want them to know that I didn’t make the mess in the first place.
C – Mistake at work
T – I’ll fix it but want them to know it wasn’t my fault
F – Worried they will think I’m not perfect
A – Let them know subtly it wasn’t my fault
R – Get the item fixed but have a feeling hanging over me that I don’t like
How do I just accept the responsibility without worrying about all the thoughts?
