Open Leadership: Post #10 - Embracing Failure

Embracing Failure: Li points out the obvious—we all have a natural aversion to failure. Duh! Beyond that she notes that when you’re moving toward being more “open,” you’d better be ready to fail. If not, you’ll not be getting anything done. [My analogy: You can keep a new car from ever getting dings, if you never drive it.] She mentions the Google mantra that I LOVE: “Fail fast, fail smart!” That is, take chances, take risks, and when sometimes you fail, learn from it…and grow. [You will get dings when you drive the new car out of the garage, but you’ll also get to go places too!]
