Tiger Woods' non-apology apology


I am a big proponent of apologies and confessions (and find myself making them frequently). Without them the world does not become a more peaceful place. Conflict is inevitable, and trust is strengthened and peace expanded when folks can take ownership of where and when they missed the mark, and commit themselves to do better going forward.

So when Tiger avoids specific admission (such as lying to police and media), then he misses the opportunity to strengthen trust going forward.

I guess none of us is perfect. It's still a worthy goal, though.

UPDATE: Tiger needs to turn the page, by coming completely clean. Otherwise, it's only going to get worse.
