Updated to include a 5-minute audio preview and the recording.
I presented free webinar on June 27th, as part of the KaiNexus Continuous Improvement Webinars series. You can access it via this page (registration required, but you'll be updated about future webinars and other free information from KaiNexus):
My Favorite Mistake, Your Favorite Mistake? Learning From Mistakes as Individuals and Organizations
I put together this new talk and presented it, in person, at the recent KaiNexicon event (the KaiNexus user conference).
A couple of people told me that it didn't seem like the first time I had given that talk, so that was nice to hear.
“Learning from mistakes” is certainly a topic that I've been talking about and thinking about a lot over the past two years, as I listen to guests that I've interviewed for my “My Favorite Mistake” podcast series.
Episodes and people referenced in my talk:
In the webinar, I'll share some stories from some VERY successful people who have managed to learn from their mistakes, including these podcast guests:
- Dr. Jen Welter
- Tom Peters
- Greg Cote
- Ron Magill
- Matthew Boos
- Kevin Harrington
- Will Hurd
- Dan Pink
- Katie Anderson
- David Mayer
- Isao Yoshino
- Greg Jacobson, MD
- Dan Garrison and Donnis Todd
- Dr. Nicole Lipkin
- Billy Taylor
- Keith Ingels
- David Meier
- Krista Hughes
I'll also share some thoughts and patterns that I've pulled out from the reflections that my guests share.
The intent is not just to learn from their mistakes so we can avoid making the exact same mistake. The intent is to prompt us to think about OUR favorite mistakes — how do we reflect, what do we learn, and how do we prevent repeating our own mistakes?
And, how can we create a culture in our organizations where it's safe for people to speak up about mistakes. How should the CEO or other leaders set the tone? Hint: It means being willing to admit mistakes as a leader, as I'll talk about in the webinar.
Please join me. It's free.
Here is the recording — with a separate video for the Q&A, made necessary by the mistakes I wrote about here.
Ironically, my webinar about mistakes was interrupted by (and then ended prematurely by) some mistakes, including my own, as you can read about in this blog post:What do you think?
