A Peculiar Step in Repairing Broken Commitments

Inside our company, we use a framework to guide the repair of broken commitments. No, we aren’t planning to break commitments with each other but when you’re pushing the edge of your ability and making lofty commitments, failure is inevitable. 

I won’t map out the entire process here, but I do want to call out one item on the list. After a series of seemingly expected steps like “Acknowledging the broken commitment” and “declaring what was more important than honoring the commitment,” there’s one that’s a powerhouse hidden in plain sight. The step I’m talking about is asking the question:

“Is this a pattern?”

What’s even more powerful than just that question is the follow up question, which asks “what are the consequences if this pattern continues?” That carries heavy implications and, frankly, is rarely asked. After all, destructive patterns are the real killers. 

I don’t think any of us should be buried for any single mistake or broken commitment. Ignoring a pattern of ineffective behavior, however, is a horse of another color.
