No matter how hard we may try to control business outcomes, nothing ever goes perfectly according to plan.
In fact, sometimes, things go so far off the tracks that we may be drawn to protect ourselves – to hide all possible traces of our missteps.
On this episode of The Workplace Communication Podcast, we’re talking with Alyssa Cox, Founder at Blue Swift Consulting about how taking an intentional approach to learning from failure provides not only the opportunity to learn, but to identify the unremediated root causes of failure so they don’t continue to drive future failures and break apart teams.
Leadership tips you won’t want to miss:
🎙️ Turning feedback that doesn’t quite hit the mark into actionable feedback – both as feedback deliverer and receiver
🎙️ Looking at project status evolution as an indicator of workplace culture
🎙️ How retrospective feedback gets you stuck
🎙️ The leadership responsibility of structuring feedback moments and how to do so
🎙️ Questions to ask during interviews to determine if you’re stepping into a risk-aversive or a risk-inclined workplace culture
If you’re looking to shift from blame towards making learning from failures a frequent and collaborative experience in your organization, then this episode is for you!
