Most people do not intentionally go out of their way to make a mistake. Mistakes happen. Even big ones. When a co-worker, employee, loved one, anyone does make a mistake, this is how you handle it. Laugh it off if you can, don’t make the person feel any worse than he or she already does – and – learn what went wrong and why so it won’t happen again in the future.
