We all face setbacks in life and it’s how we deal with them that dictates how successful we tend to be. Learning from such experiences is a powerful step in our development.
if you look back over your career what were the incidents where you learnt the most? What happened in these situations and what was it that you learned? What advice would you give someone facing a similar situation now?
As a manager how easy is it for you to sit back and watch someone fail? There are obviously some situations where we can’t afford to let people fail, due to business critical or personal issues; however if the greatest learning takes place when we suffer setbacks and experience failure by consistently riding to the rescue we are not necessarily doing the best for or people.
