Leadership Lounge: How to recover from failure
Failure can be difficult to come to terms with. Even more so if you’re a CEO at a top organization. But we’ve come to learn that failure isn’t all bad.
Leaders who have experienced the biggest failures are often the ones who make the biggest strides in their careers.
What’s important is how leaders choose to recover from failure. It’s about engaging constructively with failure to understand what went wrong, knowing how to correct course, and applying those learnings to future decision-making.
Leaders are also role models for others. Accepting failure and learning from it encourages others to do the same. It moves away from the sense that everyone needs to be perfect—something that’s highly unsustainable.
To unpack this fascinating topic in more depth, we invited four of our esteemed leadership advisors Anupama Puranik, Gurprriet Siingh, Shoon Lim, and Nick Henderson into the Leadership Lounge to answer questions about their experience in coaching leaders who’ve experienced failure—and know a thing or two about coming out the other side of it.
Tune in to discover why it’s important not to personalize the failure, and crucially, what sets leaders apart when it comes to recovering from failure.
