RISKING AND LEARNING FROM FAILURE

risking-learning-from-failure_pngInnovation is all about new; it challenges status quo, creates change and tests our tolerance for risk. And while we can understand and rationalize the need for risk-taking to fuel innovation, as individuals engaging in the process of innovation we grapple with a different risk: the risk of moving out of our comfort zone and overcoming one of our greatest fears – failure.

This highly interactive, half-day workshop examines our relationship to risk-taking in innovation. Participants begin to envision risk-taking as an opportunity for concrete experimentation, and understand how learning from failure can become their bridge to success. Click here for a full course description.
