Mistakes happen. Everyone makes them. From the best athletes in the world who spend 6 hours a day training, to the CEOs of the most successful companies like Apple, Tesla, Amazon, and many others.
One of the core mantras of Leadership development is to encourage people to make and learn from mistakes. Much of the modern thinking around leadership, change, disruption, and the “new normal” is about creating an environment and culture of innovation where mistakes are encouraged, and key learnings embraced. Like many entrepreneurs, Mark Zuckerberg believes, “Don’t even bother avoiding making mistakes, because you’re going to make tons of mistakes and the important thing is to learn quickly from the mistakes you make and not give up.”
