Whether you're in sales, public speaking, running a marathon, or learning the tango, you are going to make mistakes. It's part of the process, and it's especially common when you're at work. When you screw up, it's tempting to hide from your boss, downplay the error, or blame someone else. But you'll only learn from your mistakes if you address them - and that means admitting what went wrong and figuring out how to avoid it next time.
