… Learning from failure:
Hindsight is a wonderful thing – but only if it benefits the second time around. Sometimes we even get another chance for a “do-over” but other times, the blooper is forever. Bloopers can be funny but they are even more fun if they can be useful. That’s why I’ve invited women innovators to send me stories about their BIG failures, the mistake or the oversight they experienced – and learned from. We’ll publish a blog series about innovators’ hindsight to benefit us all. If you are interested in sharing your BIG mistake and be featured, please write me your response to the following questions by the end of April:
1. What was your goal before you failed / made the mistake? What were you trying to do/accomplish?
2. What did you believe about yourself / your abilities to accomplish it?
3. Who did you work with? Was there a team involved?
4. What made it a memorable mistake? Why do you think it was a failure?
5. How did you feel? What did you think of yourself?
6. When the failure happened, who / what supported you? How?
7. What followed? What were the consequences?
8. How has it impacted you? What did you learn?
