Is found in the reward of experience.
It doesn’t make sense at first that you would benefit from failure. Failure almost seems like something you would avoid. We strategize and plan so we can have more success and less disappointment.
And I would never encourage someone to “seek out” failure – especially failure you know how to avoid.
But in my years of leading I have learned far more by what I did wrong than what I did right. The principles learned when failing have benefited me in ways I could never gain by doing things the “right” way the first time.
So don’t dismiss the lessons you can learn by doing things the “wrong” way. And don’t beat yourself up over the times you’ve failed. If applied correctly these will be golden for your future leadership abilities.
