Learn how the way we react to failure defines much of our cultural obsession with performance
Thanks to our Failure Survey, we realized that 45% of people in work environments try to solve their mistakes by themselves rather than asking for help, even though they are aware of the lack of skills to do so.
This fact alone tells us about a reality that is more common than it seems in workplaces: there is an intention to hide failure in the hope that it will be secretly solved and not be made known to others.
Why? Because of poor management of failure and the fear generated by overreactions and consequences in the face of error.
That's why we contemplated this topic for our Failure Program series of online courses. Here's what you can expect from our Failure Management course:
Something key to be able to manage failure better is to take a few steps back and identify what it is that makes us react in certain ways.
For that, in the course, we address the topic of mindsets and biases, two variables that are closely related to the negative connotation we have toward error. You will learn to be more aware of the biases that lead us to be very harsh and strict with others (and even with ourselves) when failure knocks at our door.
In addition, you will learn about the two types of mindsets that allow us to see failure as an obstacle or an opportunity for improvement.
Much of the way we view failure is due to the culture of reward and merit that we have learned from academic life.
In this module, you will learn how we are used to rewarding and how failure and its negative connotation make us ignore other equally important factors such as processes.
You will learn what other things we can reward besides results and how we can apply these rewards so that, at the end of the day, we achieve a culture of knowledge and learning. Cultures that are closely related to innovation and resilience in the face of crisis and failure.
Many failures are avoidable and most of them are due to harmful habits and habits that prevent improvement.
With this course, you will learn to recognize negative habits and learn how they can be transformed or replaced with positive habits that allow us to improve and innovate.
Finally, we dedicate a section to learn about the most common negative reactions to failure in the office. We will learn about the impact they have on the people who make up teams and the high cost paid in the work environment.
In addition, we will learn valuable ways to react to, manage and follow up on failure so as not to turn these experiences into tense and frightening moments. As you can imagine, these proactive ways of managing failure manifest themselves in incredible ways such as greater psychological safety, innovation, and happier, more productive work teams.
You will not only learn all of the above in simple 10-minute lectures. You will also gain this knowledge through short videos and a final exercise on an individual basis that will allow you to apply your knowledge and make a quick diagnosis of how a failure was managed in your team.
This course is not for companies or work teams that are very traditional and afraid of mistakes. Cultures where may not be willing to reflect on their crisis management and be willing to make changes in favor of continuous improvement and innovation. For that, you might want to take our course on Fear of Failure, where we further analyze the negative connotation it has in the corporate world.
Failure management is a topic that is rarely talked about, but it has a huge impact on corporate culture, performance, and the work environment. We have realized how necessary this conversation is, and for this very reason, it is part of our Failure Program online course catalog:
