Via Scoop.it – Postmodern Leadership and Organizations
A top girls’ school is planning a “failure week” to teach pupils to embrace risk, build resilience and learn from their mistakes. What a wonderful idea: teach people how to fail, and especially, how to deal with being ‘wrong’. This is something one should also do in organizations. Teach people (including the senior leadership) that: 1. not everyone who disagrees with you is automatically wrong 2. they may have all the facts and still disagree 3. that does not make the stupid 4. nor does it make them evil or bad.
