Making Mistakes is Acceptable or Not? - by Ravi Patel

 

Everyone makes mistakes! Great inventions were inspired by mistakes. Entrepreneurs also make mistakes, so their tolerance towards their employees making mistakes is understandable.

 

In general, Entrepreneurs should create a business culture that does not penalize people from thinking outside the box and making mistakes. An organization cannot grow if no one takes risks just to avoid making mistakes.

 

Making mistakes is acceptable if it is during the process of trying new methods or ideas. However, it is essential to learn from these mistakes and prevent future occurrences. People grow by learning from their mistakes.

 

If an employee keeps on making the same mistake again and again despite training, coaching and direction, that is not acceptable. This no longer is a process of learning. It ultimately hurts the organization.

 

Making a mistake is acceptable. Not learning from that mistake is bad; making the same mistake repeatedly is worse.
