Who or what determines failure? Why is failure seen as negative? How can leaders deal with failure in ways to improve and benefit their leadership?
Consider a couple steps:
First, recognize failure is inevitable. No matter who you are or where you are, failure takes place.
Second, acknowledge and take responsibility. Do not ignore, deny, or cast blame when failure occurs.
Third, failure is not fatal. Winston Churchill is credited with saying, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.”
