Imagine this: every social innovative organization in Europe feels comfortable talking about failure. They acknowledge that when doing innovative work, failure is always an option. It’s an option that should be treated with the same respect as success; it’s an event that is to be shared and learned from.
That’s Antiheroes goal.
We want to develop tools to teach people how to fail in an intelligent and confident way. Want to help? We have some ideas, but are curious to what edgeryders come up with on a blank canvas. How do you think we can engage people in a conversation about professional failure?
We (2-people team based in heat blazing Brussels) are trying to develop tools that teach people how to professionally deal with failure. At the moment we focus on a workshop: 2 hours of proactive failure activities that handle participants some concrete means to prepare for, handle and blamelessly talk about failure.
Since Edgeryders is a community of people that is used to trying new things, maybe most of you already know how to fail. All the more reason for you to help us teach this skill out there!
If you know any good techniques that help people
prepare for the possibility of failure
deal with failure when it’s happening/has just happened
talk about failure without blaming/shaming others or oneself
