When the stakes are high for victory, they are often high for failure. Frequently we learn more from failure than success. Mistakes are simply part of the game of risk and sometimes we focus so much on the avoidance of the mistakes that we avert taking any risk at all. The real failure is when you avoid stepping out because it creates an inability to grow.

Leadership expert Esther Weinberg shared how failure can be the key to success. How do you fail gracefully and retain your reputation, relationships and trust? We discovered:

  • 3 steps for failing with grace and overcoming the emotions that comes with failure;
  • Communicating and positioning your failures and turning them into successes;
  • 6 strategies for targeting your determination after your setback for a greater win;
  • Overcoming the emotions that come with failure; and
  • Discovering your greatest lessons from your worst failures.
