As a business leader, I totally get that the way YOU approach failure sets the tone for how your organisation deals with it.
Although the name of the game in this almighty age of disruption is experimentation, it doesn't always work out, right? Trust me I've made plenty of my own mistakes. Unintended consequences can sometimes be bloody catastrophic! Look no further than Westfarmer's attempt to enter Britain's home improvement sector. Clearly a failure! Cost the group $1.7bn
So getting it wrong in a business context is undoubtedly a scary prospect. BUT – you've got to push back against the status quo because, quite frankly, staying the same is NEVER a good idea. So then how do you as a leader embolden your people to try new things?
