Well-known author and Professor at Stanford University Teena Seelig joins Dan Pink for this short and concise message about keeping a ‘Failure Diary’ to help you maximise learning from your past experiences.
Failure Diary and the debriefing process
The concept of a Failure Diary can also be seen in the ‘debrief’ process used by sporting teams, military groups and on business projects.
Those types of team-based debriefing processes usually focus on answering these 3 questions:
- What did we do right?
- What did we do wrong, and what did we learn from it?
- What could we do differently next time?
The message is to embrace failure, but also ensure you learn from the experience by reviewing how to do better next time.
