Q) How do you regroup when things haven’t gone as planned?

A) Here’s what you should do in real-life and in your answer:

“I pause for reflection as long as the situation allows-this can be a couple of minutes or overnight. I analyze what went wrong and why. I’m careful to look for the things that went right, too. I’ll examine alternate approaches, and time, resources, and cost considerations. Then I’ll review the situation with a peer or my boss to get a second opinion. This way I can always bounce back with the right new approach. I can’t always avoid making mistakes, but I learn from the experience.”
