Leading Through Failure in a State of Flux
Sue Padermacht, MA, PCC
December 9, 2021, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM (CST)
Virtual on Microsoft Teams
From the time we were children, most of us were taught to avoid and abhor failure. That belief system flies in the face of the reality that failure is inevitable, particularly in these disruptive, turbulent, COVID-19 times. While popular literature, podcasts, and blogs espouse the platitudes of "celebrating and learning from failure," they provide little guidance to address our beliefs about failure, nor tools for leaders to respond effectively to mistakes, mishaps, and blunders taking place in the workplace.
What is the result? "CYA" work cultures, compromised productivity and quality, communication silos, finger-pointing, and workplaces where high performers quit and leave, and others quit and stay.
