A Pathway to Dealing with Mistakes that Will Lead to Success
If you are like most businesses, there is no room for mistakes. You calculate mistakes as costly. They eat your profits. They cannot be tolerated. And the only corrective measure is to punish them.
There is a better and more productive way. And that is embracing mistakes. Because mistakes can be the greatest gift you have to finding a new and better solution, create more productivity, more honesty, and ultimately more profitability.
How you ask? Well on this episode of A New Direction Consultant and Author Mark Graban takes us through how mistakes can be your greatest gift toward success.
Mark Graban takes on a journey through his book “The Mistakes that Make Us: Cultivating a Culture of Learning and Innovation“.
The book is a culmination of his many interviews with leaders at different levels and how they handled the mistakes of others as well as their own in a way that was productive and led to more successful outcomes.
The book has several themes: First, punishing mistakes does not work. And yet for some reason we continue to do it.
Second, creating a culture of “psychological safety” gives people the freedom to make mistakes. This allows the company to correct them.
Third, making mistakes and learning from them will lead to more success, then avoiding them, hiding them, or punishing them.
The book is backed by a myriad of examples from large and small companies. It is also backed by a plethora of research from some of the leading researchers on the subject.
This can be a business changing book, and even a life changing book if people are willing to be open and have a growth mindset. Because mistakes when handled correctly can lead to much greater success for any industry or person.
