The leader must understand the difference between a reason and an excuse. You can use a reason to explain why you behaved in a certain way without implying that this reason justifies the behavior. A reason is not necessarily a (legitimate) excuse. Sometimes the other side needs to understand the reason, but we need to must be cautious about implying that this reason is an excuse. Never render your apology impotent by confusing a reason with an excuse.
