What or who determines failure? Why is failure seen as negative? How can leaders learn and improve their leadership?
Recognize failure is inevitable. No matter who you are failure takes place.
Acknowledge and take responsibility. Do not ignore, deny, or cast blame when failure occurs.
Remember the words of Winston Churchill, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
Do not hesitate to act. Waiting to act creates a perception of apathy.
Learn from failure and make changes to prevent the same mistakes.
Work to build a series of successful events or programs to reassure the strength of the leadership.
