Organizations of all sizes are plagued with people who always have an excuse for why something did not get done or for something that happened.

Excuses can be categorized as an attempt to lessen blame or to take responsibility for an action or lack of action. Deflect and blame have become blatant in the world today.

Have you heard any of these before?

  • That’s the way we have always done it.
  • That’s not my department.
  • No one told me it was okay to go ahead.
  • That’s his or her job not mine.
  • I was waiting on the boss to get back.
  • I didn’t think it was that important.
  • I was too busy to get to it.
  • I thought I told you to do it.
  • It’s (fill in a name) fault.
  • I forgot (At least an honest excuse).

Excuses are easy to give and show an inherent weakness, taking responsibility is a mark of a strong character and show leadership.
