Apologize quickly when you screw up at work

Instead of trying to hide or ignore a mistake, approach your boss immediately about what happened and suggest ways to fix the problem and strategies for avoiding it in the future, writes University of Texas at Austin professor Art Markman. "Ultimately, this approach will help your supervisor to recognize that you can handle responsibility, because you take ownership of your mistakes and work to correct them," Markman writes.
