FailureLab – Destigmatize Failure & Combat Perfectionism in the Workplace


04/20 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET

Failure Lab helps communities, organizations, and individuals remove failure-based roadblocks to innovation, collaboration, and creative thinking. Through human-centered empathic leadership training, we are pushing back on the fear of failure and encouraging intelligent risk taking.

This webinar will explore how our relationship with failure, both as individuals and organizations, impacts individual behavior, organizational culture, and overarching psychological safety.

We will explore our individual relationship with failure via the Failure Archetype Assessment and consider how your individual relationship with failure is tied to your risk tolerance. Organizationally, we will consider how an organization’s relationship with failure impacts its employee’s risk tolerance and the overarching organizational culture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Utilize the Failure Lab Failure Archetype Assessment to reflect on your most instinctual response to failure on an individual level.
  • Explore how your relationship with failure is tied to your individual risk tolerance.
  • Assess perfectionism through the lens of the Failure Lab Risk framework.
  • Consider how an organization’s relationship with failure impacts its employee’s risk tolerance. Explore high level areas of consideration to improve organizational psychological safety and encourage organizational “fear reduction.”
