Fail Quickly and Often
"I've spent a good part of my life studying economic successes and failures. Above all, I've learned that everything takes a back seat to innovation."
Tomorrow comes at us with lightning speed, and your competitive advantage is a fleeting thing. As leaders, we must create an environment that puts innovation front and center. Your people must know it is the key to your company's survival. You must create a climate that rewards risk and creative effort. Your people must not fear mistakes, but understand that honest mistakes can be life's main source for learning. SO TEACH THEM TO FAIL QUICKLY, AND OFTEN, TO ENABLE THEM TO REACH THE NEXT PLATEAU.
That was an excerpt from our book Paper Airplane: A Lesson for Flying Outside the Box. Back by popular demand, we have reprinted it for your enjoyment.
