ARTICLE OF THE MONTH: "Take Back the F Word! Turn Your Failures Into Flopportunities" by Jo Miller
Have you ever noticed how best learning opportunities sometimes come brilliantly disguised as gut-wrenching, cringe-inducing flops?
So you bombed the big presentation, missed a product rollout deadline, or had your new team implode. What now?
Don’t be afraid to speak the F word: failure.
Don’t hide your career face-plants, flops, and fails. Just like a dreadful first date can become a hilarious story with the addition of 24 hours, a girlfriend, and a bottle of Pinot, your most gut-wrenching failures make for indelible, relatable lessons that highlight your hard-won expertise. If you’re willing to be uncommonly courageous, vulnerable, and authentic, you can make a “flopportunity” part of your personal brand by telling an inspiring story about what went wrong—and how you turned things around.
