ETIQUETTE CHALLENGE, Week of 6/24/2024

We’re working our way through our five magic words, and this week’s is “I’m Sorry.” I’m Sorry, it can be used for mistakes large and small. It helps us take accountability and responsibility, and it can be used to express sympathy. Do your best this week to look for ways, big and small, to deliver a good apology or express sympathy with this common phrase. The more you use it, the easier it gets.
