“People want to know their leader can be vulnerable, but is still leading. It's a critical distinction. . . You are not only showing a human side to your leadership, but you are implicitly giving them permission to fail within boundaries.”

- Dan Breene

“Success isn’t about avoiding failure. Truly successful people appreciate and understand that failure as a part of the process, something that you prepare for, go through, and learn from.”

- Daniel Harkavy

Episode Show Notes

In both life and leadership, failure is a given. It’s something we need to always be prepared for, because even our best-laid plans can go awry. Therefore, your success as a leader is often defined not by your ability to avoid failure, but by your ability to embrace it, learn from it and seize the opportunities it brings.

Join us as we hear from rock and alpine guide Jason Martin on how his experiences on the mountain can teach us a thing or two about preparing for failure and handling it well when it inevitably comes our way.
