"I screwed up"

What an interesting thing to hear from a president.

After 16 years and two administrations that either couldn't or wouldn't tell the truth - here's one that steps up and admits mistakes.

We're all hoping we don't hear that phrase too often, but it does paint a different picture of accountability.

Chapter 9 of Leadership RE:Vision is titled Tell The Truth About Bad News and suggests that leaders often sugar-coat reports of bad news to spare people's feelings or to protect morale. The book asks leaders to examine and revise the way they approach truth-telling in their communication.
