View failure as a necessary no-so-evil


  1. Look inward.
    Why does taking risks scare you? Why are you afraid to fail? Write down your answers so you can begin to understand what is standing in the way of your growth.
  2. Evaluate and learn from your mistakes.
    Instead of sweeping them under the rug, evaluate the situation every time you make a mistake. What went wrong? How can you or your team improve next time? Note what you learn so that the mistake doesn’t happen again. Your team will grow from it.
  3. Remind your team that failure is part of the process.
    When mistakes are made, or issues arise, morale might plummet. Speak with those who make a mistake and ask them what they learned. Acknowledging failure and creating a safe place to discuss mistakes will help fuel creativity.
