Unlocking Growth Through Intelligent Failures: The Strategic Advantage of Embracing Fallibility
Conference 2024 . Harvard medical school, mclean and institute of coaching

The hyper-competitive business landscape has leaders trapped in a dilemma: embrace risks and the inherent possibility of failure, or avoid them and stagnate? Harvard Business School Professor and bestselling author Amy Edmondson says while most missteps can be avoided, intelligent failures are gold mines of learning and innovation. As she explains in her highly anticipated new book, “Right Kind of Wrong: The Science of Failing Well” (September 2023), leaders can transform their perspective on setbacks by embracing the intelligent failures that are vital to innovation.

She likewise uncovers how basic and complex failures can reveal and prevent future recurrences. With Edmondson’s approach, leaders and teams gain specifically tailored practices, skills and mindsets for taking smart risks and using their inevitable mistakes as springboards for profound learning and competitive differentiation.
