FAILURE. Very scary word to many of us. Nobody wants to fail. Yet we know that EVERYONE fails at something all the time. The thing is - we often do not see or hear about the failures - only the success stories.
This is not good as we miss out on opportunities to both teach others and learn from others. Ok sounds all good but how do we truly dare to embrace failure and make it into something positive for ourselves and our teams and organizations?
