Make Amends

In Moral Repair (Cambridge University Press 2012), Margaret Urban Walker describes making amends as taking reparative action, but only action that issues from an acceptance of responsibility for#0160;wrong doing, and that embodies the will to set right something for which amends are#0160;owed.

This is not unlike some of the steps in recovery programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous:

  1. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
    1. In other words, to my knowledge, this is who our organization has harmed, and we would like to do what we can to correct our mistake.
  2. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
    1. In other words, we accept full responsibility for our mistakes, and we will do what we can to correct this mistake.
  3. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
    1. In other words, we will continue to monitor our attitudes and actions, and when we are wrong, we will promptly admit it.

Making amends builds resilience, for individuals, and organizations. Leaders who can admit to their mistakes can make them meaningful. They can masterfully lead through mistakes.

In Health, Wealth and Happiness,
