What is the best approach to handling the concept of ‘failure?’ In what ways can we as Applied Improvisers help the organizations and individuals we work with ‘right-size’ their relationships with failure? This interactive session will feature a ‘fish bowl’ style conversation in which participants will:

  • Gain awareness of how to apply lessons learned for identifying and handling failure
  • Clarify the role of mistakes/failure in the field of innovation
  • Explore options for framing conversations about failures for optimal outcomes

Join us for a conversation about how you can work with these concepts in a variety of settings and contexts.
