The following material was found on the “cutting room floor” for my upcoming book, The Mistakes That Make Us: Cultivating a Culture of Learning and Innovation. And I've supplemented it with some new material to flesh it out into a post.
Come to the live book cover reveal event tomorrow (Tuesday, May 2) if you can!
I've asked more than 215 people the same question (releasing 208 episodes to date):
“What's your favorite mistake?“
You might wonder why I seem to be so obsessed with this question. It's not because I love embarrassing people or because I want to gloat about the mistakes of others. I ask this question to learn and improve myself as a person and leader.
The book and the podcast series are meant to be reminders that we shouldn't mock people for their mistakes. We shouldn't be too hard on ourselves, even if that's easier said than done.
