VCET Lunch & Learn: Turning Failure into Fertilizer: How to Compost Your Setbacks

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Historically there has been a stigma associated with failure – if the world is viewed from a win/lose perspective. Increasingly there is an acceptance that no learning is possible without making “healthy mistakes.” This interactive seminar will look at our reactions to failure, how people typically move through a business loss, and ways to incorporate the sometimes-hidden benefits from our errors. Join this free webinar to learn how to see a path forward, with expert, psychologist, and business consultant, Flip Brown.
