After trying hard in good faith, taking full responsibility for a failure is a good thing to do. If the President makes a mistake, he should be the first one to say, “hey people of the world, I just screwed this up". Leaders who say, “I’ve made a mistake. Let me try to fix it” tends to attract the appreciation of others. Admitting mistakes builds trust and credibility.
I highly recommend a book for PNoy and all people around him specially in the communications group. The title of the book is GETTING NAKED. The author is PATRICK LENCIONI. This book will teach you that honesty is the best packaging ever.
