Making mistakes, unfortunately, is part of being human.

But how do you handle mistakes on the job, especially if that job is something with such high stakes as civil engineering?

Mike Howell has been helping engineers own and learn from their mistakes for years. He talks about how to stop trying to be perfect and start being human (2:50).

In the debut of a segment called “True Adventures,” Cris Surbeck tells a story from early in her career when she learned a valuable lesson (13:40).

And in Member Memos, we talk more about the art of making mistakes with civil engineers sharing valuable tips from their own careers (19:35).
