The number one problem at work is fear of failure, yet we must learn to embrace mistakes in order to improve.

We naturally recoil from screwing things up, yet innovation requires errors. Growth only occurs in the aftermath of experience, and so those with the courage to make mistakes are the ones with the opportunity to grow and become excellent. This inspiring program covers the psychology of failure and helps to change the conversation surrounding perfection and transformation.

For professionals who want to move past complacency to fully realize their potential, or for those who need a fresh perspective on their setbacks and how to grow from them.

Key Topics:

  • Famous failures in history: business, sports, science, and more
  • The power of making intentional mistakes.
  • Benefits of self-forgiveness over perfection.

This program is sponsored by the Indianapolis Federal Executive Association. Event is free to FEA members and guests. Register to attend by contacting FEA Secretary Carol Gallagher at carolann.gallagher@fda.hhs.gov.
