ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the importance for executives to admit the mistakes that they have made. He mentions that executives tend to receive performance pressure from boards, stakeholders, customers as well as from personally imposed standards of excellence. He notes that women executives are better equipped in handling job pressure as compared to their male counterparts due to their vulnerability. He also discusses the benefits from the admission of weaknesses, one of which is gaining employee allegiance and improvement of morale.
