In the light of Alan Jones’s comments, I want to add my own.
But not on what he said about Julia Gillard. Many people have commented on that.
I want to turn my attention to his apology. I don’t think it was really an apology.
And why? I found out the hard way how to apologise…
At work during a crisis I panicked and barged into someone else’s office to use the phone.
Only problem was that the someone else was there in a meeting!
Next day, I knocked on the door. I was asked in. I said two words. “I’m sorry”.
That was it. No problems.
And what did I learn:
- Just say sorry.
- Don’t justify your actions/make excuses blame the other person .
- Otherwise refer to rule 1.
