If you need to say I'm sorry but aren't sure how, then you've come to the right place!

We've all been there—messing up, well, makes us human. It's how we clean up the mess that makes us more successful. By delivering an effective apology you inevitably gain respect from friends and colleagues and significantly reduce any, or even all, of the damage done.

Asking for forgiveness requires a little more time and effort than uttering a few simple words.

Apologizing is both an art AND a science; truly thoughtful apologies rebuild relationships, but a careless, rushed or thoughtless I'm sorry can do more harm than good!

Learn the secrets and techniques used by professional writers, scholars, publicists, public relations experts and apply their strategies in letter form or verbally.

Remember, "to err is human..." and for every mistake there is a perfect apology™!
