Feedback form is now closed.

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.
