I do what has turned out to do a fairly effective lesson on taking responsibility, and use various articles and video clips (see The Best Resources For Helping Students (& The Rest Of Us) Learn The Concept Of Not Blaming Others).
Today, Army General Gustave Perna, the chief operating officer of Operation Warp Speed (responsible for the COVID 19 vaccines), provided another good example that can be used with the lesson.
Here’s a tweet with the short section and, below that, you can see a video of his entire briefing (the tweeted portion starts at around 16 minutes in):
GUS PERNA, the general running logistics for Operation Warp Speed, takes sole responsibility for a big problem with Pfizer vaccine rollout: states report they’re getting less than they were promised.
“It was my fault,” Perna says. “It was a planning error, and I am responsible.” pic.twitter.com/LbMpT9l23B
