Early on in my working life I learned a valuable lesson that has stuck with me ever since: You should chastise people in private, but apologize in public.

Sadly, like all lessons of this nature, I had to learn it from first hand experience. Not just being a casual observer of it happening to somebody else, rather being the employee on the receiving end of this being done the wrong away around.
