I like the way Chip Conley ends this apology example. I may have to keep a copy in my back pocket: “It’s not easy for me to say I’m sorry, but not admitting a mistake is worse than pointing out a mistake. While I still believe in my logical point, I lacked empathy and artfulness in how I expressed it. Please accept my apology, and let’s get back to a healthy debate on this topic.”
