Blame is a feeling, not a part of your body, like your heart.
When someone else feels the need to blame you for something, it might be OK to simply … let them.
They may not be ready for the truth.
The truth is that most things break down because we all could have done something a little better. Both you and them.
The only part you control is yours.
Look deep, and, you’ll find it.
And then, once you’ve found it, you can lead by example.
“Yes, you’re right. I could have better. I will be more mindful of this next time. I am happy to take the blame for this.”
The truth is that we all share the blame, but, as I already stated, the truth can only be seen when you are willing to open your eyes to it.
I find this technique very helpful in my career. I coach others and I must lead by example.
I am not naive. I know that there are people out there who would try to use this against me.
I believe you can rise above that kind of behavior and elevate your career in the process.
