Learning Organizations – OK to Fail

Thursday, August 8, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am

Free – $39.00

Failure – The Key to Success

Is fail a 4-letter word in your organization? Does your team struggle to get out of their comfort zone and take risks? Do you realize the role failure can play in moving your company forward but struggle to convince others of that? Are you confused (but intrigued) that I seem to be saying failure can be a good thing? If so, this workshop is for you. We’ll explore how even though failure is seen as bad it can be a key in breaking though stagnation and moving your company forward. We’ll look at the key cultural elements that create an environment that encourages and rewards appropriate risk taking. You’ll experience (through a hand-on activity) failure first hand and see how it leads to a level of success that would not have been possible otherwise.

Your presenter:
