Apologies are hard to do — they are humbling, irritating and often required during periods of high emotional pressure and agitation. I promise, we live in a very forgiving world, people want to forgive you. A solid apology allows that.
For public figures apologies may affect your image, your career options and of course your income, and I have always believed that our reputations are the most valuable things we own.
As we just saw with Kevin Hart and the Oscars, a botched apology can lose you a dream job if handled badly.
Don’t let the anger get the best of you. Get in touch with your most rational self, and get a team together to help you.
