“Isn’t it interesting that when others fail,
we tend to admire them for trying? Yet
when we fail, we beat ourselves up for
the very same thing.
Not only that, but isn’t it also amazing
how quickly we forgive and forget other
people’s mistakes and how long we hold
onto our own?”
— We See Others’ Failures as Courageous.
We See Our Own as Shameful. Why?
By Carl Richards, New York Times
What’s your philosophy
when it comes to failure?
“Failures or setbacks are merely part of
the journey of learning and growing.”
— Lorene Phillips
What’s your philosophy
when it comes to failure?
“As hard as it may be when you
are going through it, think of
failure as growth opportunities.
If you're not failing, you're not
growing.”
— Mallun Yen
Research Shows…
1. Trial-and-error problem-solving helps groups outperform those who make
fewer errors, particularly when transferring the skills learned to a new task.
2. Resilient people are distinctive in that they find positive meaning in negative
experiences.
3. In a stressful situation, by prompting yourself to reframe emotions –
considering what positive qualities you’ll bring to the situation, you give
yourself a greater sense of control.
4. Those with a learning mindset (a belief that human traits are malleable and
learnable), are significantly more likely to engage in goal oriented behaviors
and strategies linked to improved performance than those with a more fixed
mindset.
5. Suffering is shown to be a catalyst for growth, meaning & compassion; this is
especially true when we choose to view suffering in these ways.
Share an example of a time
early in your career when
you dealt with failure.
• Trust your gut.
• Always make sure that your
career goals are aligned with
your values... Be true to myself.
• Don’t be afraid to change
directions – you will be ok –
believe in yourself
Share an example of a time
early in your career when
you dealt with failure.
• When you want to just hide,
those are the best growth
opportunities
• Your biggest critics can become
your biggest cheerleaders
• Ask for feedback (and help).
Share an example of a time
later in your career when you
dealt with failure.
• Always be optimistic – as you
think so are you.
• Work hard but strategically build
your network. We cannot make
it on our own.
• Fail forward! Always learn from
your set-backs – be courageous
be resilient.
Share an example of a time
later in your career when you
dealt with failure.
• The Facebook view of life is not
real.
• Get over yourself – it’s usually
not only just about you.
• Sometimes a kick in the pants is
good to force you to explore
new opportunities.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal:
It is the courage to continue that counts.”
— Unknown
How can I regain confidence
to get over "feeling like a
failure" after failing?
1. Identify what you did wrong or
could have done better.
2. Shift from a negative to a positive
mindset.
3. Aim to do at least one thing right as
soon as possible
4. Don’t take it personally.
How can you stay positive
in the face of multiple
failures?
1. Focus on what change you will
make or perspective you will gain.
2. Force yourself to get out there, go
to events, talk to people.
3. Seek out some of your biggest
supporters who are probably the
ones who will be most honest with
you.
4. If you’ve raised or taught kids,
think about it the way you would
look at it with them – it’s a growth
and learning opportunity that is a
gift in many ways.
How do you approach your
boss if you've messed up?
1. Advise your boss immediately
upon learning that you have made a
mistake. 2. Ask for help and fix it
right away.
These actions communicate
professional responsibility
and a desire to fix the problem
sooner than later.
Humility is also demonstrated
as you have to put aside your
ego/fear about what others
may think of you and instead
focus on what is best for your
team/company.
It takes confidence, courage
and integrity to do this.
How do you get your
organization to understand
the value of failure?
Psychological safety is
the key to high
performing teams.
The highest performing
teams make the most
mistakes. Because it's
safe to make mistakes.
Mistakes help you
learn and grow.
“Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo.”
— Jon Sinclair
If you do fail, what are some
ways to move forward?
Learn and
move on!
Focus on
what’s in your
control
Positive self-
care and work
life balance
People with a
positive
mindset
Make at least
one change
Don't
overthink it
Talk about it;
Embrace it
Get over
yourself
“Something needs to change, and it’s
not the part about how forgiving we
are of others’ failures.
What if we just extended ourselves
the same grace?”
— We See Others’ Failures as Courageous.
We See Our Own as Shameful. Why?
By Carl Richards, New York Times

  • 12. “Isn’t it interesting that when others fail, we tend to admire them for trying? Yet when we fail, we beat ourselves up for the very same thing. Not only that, but isn’t it also amazing how quickly we forgive and forget other people’s mistakes and how long we hold onto our own?” — We See Others’ Failures as Courageous. We See Our Own as Shameful. Why? By Carl Richards, New York Times
  • 13. What’s your philosophy when it comes to failure?

  • 16. “As hard as it may be when you are going through it, think of failure as growth opportunities. If you're not failing, you're not growing.” — Mallun Yen
  • 17. Research Shows… 1. Trial-and-error problem-solving helps groups outperform those who make fewer errors, particularly when transferring the skills learned to a new task. 2. Resilient people are distinctive in that they find positive meaning in negative experiences. 3. In a stressful situation, by prompting yourself to reframe emotions – considering what positive qualities you’ll bring to the situation, you give yourself a greater sense of control. 4. Those with a learning mindset (a belief that human traits are malleable and learnable), are significantly more likely to engage in goal oriented behaviors and strategies linked to improved performance than those with a more fixed mindset. 5. Suffering is shown to be a catalyst for growth, meaning & compassion; this is especially true when we choose to view suffering in these ways.

  • 20. Share an example of a time later in your career when you dealt with failure. • Always be optimistic – as you think so are you. • Work hard but strategically build your network. We cannot make it on our own. • Fail forward! Always learn from your set-backs – be courageous be resilient.
  • 21. Share an example of a time later in your career when you dealt with failure. • The Facebook view of life is not real. • Get over yourself – it’s usually not only just about you. • Sometimes a kick in the pants is good to force you to explore new opportunities.
  • 22. “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” — Unknown
  • 23. How can I regain confidence to get over "feeling like a failure" after failing? 1. Identify what you did wrong or could have done better. 2. Shift from a negative to a positive mindset. 3. Aim to do at least one thing right as soon as possible 4. Don’t take it personally.
  • 24. How can you stay positive in the face of multiple failures? 1. Focus on what change you will make or perspective you will gain. 2. Force yourself to get out there, go to events, talk to people. 3. Seek out some of your biggest supporters who are probably the ones who will be most honest with you. 4. If you’ve raised or taught kids, think about it the way you would look at it with them – it’s a growth and learning opportunity that is a gift in many ways.
  • 25. How do you approach your boss if you've messed up? 1. Advise your boss immediately upon learning that you have made a mistake. 2. Ask for help and fix it right away.
  • 26. These actions communicate professional responsibility and a desire to fix the problem sooner than later. Humility is also demonstrated as you have to put aside your ego/fear about what others may think of you and instead focus on what is best for your team/company. It takes confidence, courage and integrity to do this.

(NIH, 2011) Resilience is associated with longevity, lower rates of depression, and greater life satisfaction. Even in a stressful situation, by prompting yourself to reframe emotions – considering for example what positive qualities you’ll bring to the situation, you give yourself a greater sense of control. (Harvard Health, 2016) A meta-analysis of mindset research found that those with a learning mindset (a belief that human traits are malleable and learnable), were significantly more likely to engage in goal oriented behaviors and strategies linked to improved performance than those with a more fixed mindset. (David Yeager, PhD, U. of Austin, 2017) According to health research, suffering has been shown to be a catalyst for growth, meaning, and compassion; the latest science shows this is especially true when we choose to view suffering in these ways. (Kelly McGonigal PhD, Stanford University, 2015)
  6. Lorene: Resist the urge to stay in that place of ‘funk’ or feeling of failure. Learn and move on ! Focus on what is in your control only - that you can fix – leave the rest. Positive self-care and a healthy work life balance all contribute to a faster recovery after a set-back. Hang around people with a positive mindset and those who genuinely wants you to succeed. Stay away from all others.
  7. Poll: Next time you fail, what will you do to move forward? Treat it as an opportunity to learn and grow Make at least one change Talk about it and embrace it Focus on what’s in my control Positive self-care and work life balance
