Your brain is wired to avoid failure, so learning from it takes extra effort.

We already know that learning from failure can lead to great success. But seeing the lessons can be hard as we're wired to avoid failure. We often perceive failure as a threat, so we run. What’s worse? We don’t even know we’re doing it.

Join us online to learn how to foster a culture of learning from failure. You’ll learn the neuroscience behind why we avoid failure, and you’ll leave with discrete strategies for how to shift the team’s perspective when our natural tendencies make it hard, including how to:

  • Ask powerful questions
  • Share failures to avoid making the same mistakes
  • Reward the process as much as the outcome

Who Should Attend

This webcast is ideal for leaders, managers, and supervisors who want to build a team culture that embraces learning from failure rather than fearing it.


1) Deconstructing Failure – You'll learn why the brain responds to failure the way it does and often prevents risk-taking, and you’ll understand how psychological safety can change the way the brain responds to failure.

    1. Get Curious and Think Outside the Box
