How to be an Even Better Manager: A Complete A-Z of Proven Techniques and Essential Skills (9th Edition)
Michael Armstrong, London: Kogan Page Limited (2014)
Ten ways to recover from a setback:
- “Learn from what has happened
- If you have made a mistake, analyze how and why you did so and how you can avoid making it again
- Accentuate the positive and build on what you know and can do and have already achieved
- Assess your strengths and work out how you can use them more effectively in the future
- Assess your weaknesses (but don’t dwell on them) and what you need to do to overcome them
- Although it is good to assess your strengths and weaknesses, avoid too much introspection – get into action
- Seek the views of those you respect on what action you should take
- Be clear about where you want to go and how you are going to get there
- Enlist support from others in achieving your plans
- Realize it’s not the end of the world.”
