Leadership lessons in how to fail well

See on Scoop.itGlobal Leadership Coaching by Equanimity Executive

Leaders need to think about failure as a process we go through rather than an event to avoid at all costs.

 

I crashed my car recently. It was about 8 a.m. I was in a rush (what else is new?) to get to a meeting for a nonprofit I belong to. I learned how to drive in Thailand, so I’m rather proud of my driving reflexes — even pride myself on holding my own with the cab drivers in New York City. The car in front of me stopped. Unfortunately I didn’t.

The good news is that I emerged totally functional (or at least no more dysfunctional than usual). The other piece of good news is that the experience taught me some lessons on how to fail well. It taught me that we need to think about failure as a process we go through rather than an event to avoid at all costs.
