Leaders are told they must create a culture that fosters risk, rewards achievement, and accepts failure. That’s all good, but to make it happen, leaders must learn to set the stage for creativity.
Some of the stories we like best are about failure.
Love this article and what it has to say about academia and the culture of success that we live in. It is VERY difficult to allow for failure and even more difficult to share it openly with others – could it be that we fear our jobs if we don’t find the balance between failure and success? Perhaps. This is my favorite line: "Decrease the fear of failure to increase creativity." Easier said than done but a noble goal.
