Publisher's Summary

Effective Apology challenges you to think about the fundamental value of an apology, to you and the receiver, as it explores in detail the key dimensions - what Kador calls the Five Rs - of a wholehearted apology, one that heals and renews. Kador also offers advice on how to accept or reject an apology, 10 apology do's and don'ts, and a quiz to test your Apology Quotient.

The willingness to apologize signals strength, character, and integrity - real leadership is impossible without it. With over 70 examples of the good, the bad, and the ineffective apology in action, no other book combines such a practical, how-to approach with a rich analysis of what it takes to make apology work in the real world.

"Effective Apology is the sort of book I wish I'd read years ago...the definitive guide to using two simple words - I'm sorry - to improve our lives and ennoble our world." (Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind)
