How can your organization turn failure into a growth opportunity? This one-day workshop can help you do just that. 

“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.” – Henry Ford

One thing companies commonly fail at – is failure.

Instead of studying the lessons presented and using them to build toward success, companies tend to punish failure or sweep it under the rug and pretend it didn’t happen. But no matter how good your people are and how hard you work, there will come a day when your organization experiences failure. It is inevitable. As painful as it will be, how your organization deals with that failure can be more important and more impactful than the event itself.

Thunderbird School of Global Management’s “Succeeding through Failure” is a practical, one-day workshop designed to help mid-to-upper level managers understand that, while failure may be inevitable, failing to learn from it doesn’t have to be.
