How to learn the tough leadership lessons without paying the price
Talking about failure is difficult, if not taboo. Our business cultures are designed to reward short term success and penalize failure. However, a paradox exists – in order to succeed as a leader, we need to learn lessons from failure. Dr. Weinzimmer tackles the issue head on by showing how insights learned from failure are indispensible in creating great leaders - that when we take the time to examine failure, we can proactively avoid making the same mistakes ourselves. Discover the ability to recognize the most common causes of leadership failure and clearly outlined strategies for navigating toward success.
