Failure matters. Why? Because failure is like gravity – it’s everywhere and we spend much, if not most, of our lives creating it, dealing with it, and trying to learn from it. It’s a topic that impacts every aspect of business. It is also the other ‘F’ word in business. The fear of failure is encountered in virtually every major organizational function and level—from the C-suite to the factory floor and from frontline sales teams to back-office support managers. In this workshop, you will explore an alternative perspective on failure and learn how to turn failure from a regrettable reality into a resource for resiliency and walk away with valuable new knowledge and insights that can help your organization leap ahead in performance and deal with failure productively and intelligently.
