Tomorrow I’m leading a short session for a local group (http://www.linkedin.com/groups?mostPopular=&gid=2040411) under the broad heading of failure. Far from making it a downbeat session. we will be exploring:
- how we apply the f-word differently to ourselves than those we may be with (sometimes more critical, sometimes more tolerant)
- how we can prevent the real failures (e.g. when no lessons get learned)
- how we can spot things early
- how we can remember to apply good coaching skills to ourselves
Preparation? Well, between now and tomorrow morning you might like to bear in mind a recent event which looked like a failure but had a very silver lining.
I’ll write up how it went, and also produce a quick handout as well.
