Recording: The Mistakes That Make Us: A Book Birthday Event


My latest book, The Mistakes That Make Us: Cultivating a Culture of Learning and Innovation, has turned one year old!

Join me and my co-host, Elisabeth Swan, for what we hope will be an engaging, insightful, and fun discussion about learning from mistakes. We'll be joined by special surprise guests who share their unique perspectives and experiences. This isn't just a one-way broadcast–it's an interactive session where we'll conduct live polls and open the virtual floor to your questions, ensuring a dynamic and participative environment.

Mistakes are a universal experience; what truly matters is how we learn from them. Together, we will explore ways to improve our ability to learn from mistakes as individuals and as organizations. I aim to uncover practical strategies that can be applied in various contexts to foster a culture of continuous learning and improvement.

Topics include:

  • Admitting mistakes
  • Reacting to mistakes
  • Learning from mistakes
  • Psychological Safety

We also have a special reason to celebrate. The Mistakes That Make Us is marking its first anniversary/birthday on June 30th. However, since that falls on a Sunday, and let's face it, who wants to be on LinkedIn on a Sunday? I've decided to move the celebration to Friday, June 28th. This will give us the perfect opportunity to discuss the book's themes and celebrate its impact over the past year.
