Saravana Bharathi on why it is important to accept that we make mistakes

We make mistakes, that’s part of our journey. Saravana tells us a story of how he failed by not allowing a team member to make mistakes. This is a failure that he still remembers and has shaped his thinking on the importance of accepting that mistakes are part of the learning process.
Saravana also shares with us the tools he uses to help me listen more, and give the initiative to the teams he works with. The tool, is very simple and very effective: when you feel you want to say something, wait and count to 5. By the time you reach 5, the team will probably have come up with a solution or next step to the issue they face.
