I think that my husband was embarrassed too because he just kept walking until I yelled for him to come back for me. What is it about embarrassing moments that make them easier to cope with when someone else is with you?
I did my graduate work in leadership studies and I am absolutely fascinated with the practice and theories of leadership. One of the characteristics that I feel is important when we are exercising leadership is the ability to laugh at ourselves. Having the confidence to admit when we messed up and move forward with humor and a new sense of purpose. Not ignoring the embarrassing moments but embracing them with humility and dignity. Now, this is courageous. Maybe the next time I slip in front of others, I'll try not to call out for someone else and utilize the embarrassing moment to enhance my leadership capacity.
