Most CEOs will readily admit a big mistake they made early in their careers—and what they learned. If you’re mortified by a high-profile screw-up, extract lessons from it. Show grace and wisdom in the face of embarrassment. Craft a oneminute anecdote that summarizes what you did wrong and what you learned. This will help you detach yourself from the mishap and prepare for interviews when you’re asked to discuss how you responded to a mistake.
