In this episode, the team discusses how embracing the gospel allows us to accept responsibility for our mistakes and offer genuine apologies to those we’ve hurt. The LDI Crew also discussed what makes a good apology. 

Each episode features a quote of the week, big takeaways, and a Growing Together segment geared at imperfect leaders who are seeking development in their leadership potential. 

Quote of the Week:
“If apologizing were a way of life, no walls would be built. Relationships would be authentic. Certainly people would fail, but the failures would be dealt with in an open and honest manner. Regrets would be expressed; responsibility would be accepted. Restitution would be made. Genuine repentance would be our intention, and we would stand humbly and say, “I need somebody to forgive me.” When apology becomes a way of life, relationships will remain healthy. People will find the acceptance, support, and encouragement they need.” — The Five Languages of Apology, Gary Chapman & Jennifer Thomas
