With age has come the wisdom that failure can be a friend. It should be used as a force from which to learn and grow. Great leaders learn from not only successes but also failures. Wasted energy is spent attempting to hide past failures by sweeping them under the rug or defending them. It is key for productive leaders to quickly move from failure to learning. Take time to inventory your past failures and learn from them.
By reviewing failed processes, outcomes and discrepancies, this research will lead to learning. Mistakes are inevitable and learning from them can be powerful for future growth leading to greater success in the future. Set yourself apart by improving your leadership success by turning your failures into opportunities!
“All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes.”-Winston Churchill
