|| I do own up to it, even if it really wasn't my own (see my reply to Althea). It still often causes conflict, but in the case of what happened before, I didn't lose anything but money and sleep. No customers.
So, one of my business goals is to be careful when I select companies to outsource to, to cut down on this conflict. AND, being careful myself to prevent any possible mistakes that could cause conflict.
I think it would be to prevent ANY possible situation that could cause conflict in any capacity.

Has anyone else had Karen's experience? How did you deal with it?
What kind of result would you like? For example, is it to prevent conflict, to "win" at conflicts more, to be more assertive... or ?
Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but the owning up to mistakes is part of the conflict issue, isn't it? If you notice a mistake before being confronted, do you own up to it? If not, what do you do?

Actually, I do own up to them, but I still have trouble doing it, and walking away thinking "What did I learn from this?" instead of "Oh, you stupid idiot, you're life's ruined":-)Part of that comes from working on organization. Sometimes, though, the conflict is through no fault of my own, and I had trouble being assertive enough to stand up for myself, so I'd like to improve on my documentation to back myself up.
