Brains are wired to move away from threat and toward reward (but you probably already knew that). Minor 'failing' can be considered a threat and our avoidance often times stunts growth within an organization. From not wanting to start a new project to being okay with processes that don't work, it can be a challenge to get over the barrier to potentially fail. As leaders within our organization, a way that we can create psychological safety is allowing failure within our employees work. Jill Windelspecht joins us on the podcast this week to talk about what it looks like to fail, why it is important to fail, and how we can continue to promote failing to learn within our workplaces.
Teams also need to get away and have time to think together and reflect together. Be able to spend just an hour to be curious about each other. -Denise Van Eck, Owner of Thought Design
