THE BOUNCE BACK: HOW TO RISK MORE AND FAIL BETTER
Given our love of glossy pitch reels, seamless presentations, perfect executions and our collective finger pointing at the ‘Turkeys of the Week’, we aren’t known as an industry that loves to fail.
When we do talk about it, we tend to focus on shiny tales of failure that segue seamlessly into reassuring stories of success: The high-school drop-out turned billionaire; the brand PR disaster turned into a PR dream; the botched interview followed by the perfect job offer. But we avoid really discussing personal failure at all costs.
What is missing is a more honest conversation about how we feel while we are failing and after – what makes us choose the safe path afterward vs facing risk again bravely? How can we fail better so that we learn to be more comfortable with risk? And how can failure become a building block in our future success?
Let’s throw aside our pride, self-doubt and secrecy. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty truth about how failure can be the best (worst) thing that happens to us – personally and professionally.
On the night the panelists shared their true stories of failure and the experiences of bouncing back, followed by a workshop led by coach Rosie Dalling from healthy selfish exploring our own failures and how to reframe them as building blocks to our future success.
