Excuses, Excuses

Marshall Goldsmith

When Bill Clinton published his best-selling memoir in 2004, he knew he would have to deal with the Monica Lewinsky scandal during his second term. He did so by explaining it as a personal failure, a yielding to private demons.

Coaching Tip

They make decisions and assumptions so quickly that they often do not realize the steps they perform automatically. When they share their thought process for the first time with others, they often skip many important steps. The human mind stores knowledge for rapid processing of information, not for explanation.

Suddenly, we’re more aloof, more reserved. “I’m the boss now – I cannot ‘mix it up’ as much with the team.
