Webinar: Fail to Learn
How to Grow you Organization through Trial, Error, and Play
How much failure do you allow in your organization? Is it something you try to minimize, or try to encourage? And while you might claim to “fail fast and cheap,” how often do you end up doing the exact opposite?
In this webinar, we will explore how our society developed such an aversion to failure. We’ll see how 20th-century education models and business plans are designed to minimize mistakes, even though research shows that mistakes are one of the biggest precursors to success. We will see how true innovators, from James Dyson to Thomas Edison, had failure rates well above 90%. And we will compare these rates to our own as we ask ourselves, “How can we get better by getting it wrong?”
Through discussion and hands-on mini-exercises, this webinar will reveal that professional environments have a lot to learn from the commercial gaming industry, the one spot in society where failure is actually expected and encouraged. Attendees will receive case studies and ready-to-use tools for creating fail-forward approaches within their own organizations, and building a playful and fearless learning culture.
Perfect for designers, trainers, and HR leaders, this session will give you the data and tools you need to improve any project or initiative through the lost art of trial and error.
Participants will learn:
- To identify how adult learners have come to fear failure.
- How to analyze and compare failure ratios, rates, and costs.
- How to use game-based thinking to create environments that increase reflection and self-efficacy.
- To get comfortable creating business metrics, even when they might fail.
- How to “gamify” any learning environment with a provided template.
