How can assistants help build a healthy culture in the workplace? We can start by owning our mistakes.
Admitting you’re wrong is not easy, but it is a necessary skill to master if you want to be an impactful leader who builds a healthy culture in your workplace.
I learned this valuable lesson about company culture while pushing carts at Walmart in high school, and it has helped me out in my career as an EA.
In this episode, I share my memorable experience and what I learned.
