Dealing With Failure
Failure is a reality in every business. How will you handle it?
Ask yourself these questions:
- How does your company handle failure? Is it punished immediately, tolerated or rewarded?
- What can you do to promote successful failures within your firm? Is it possible to build it in as a performance measure?
- Is there a forum within your company where failures can be diagnosed and discussed in a professional atmosphere?
Remember, even some of history's greatest innovators have made a lot of failures.
