What is the definition of failing forward?
First, learning from failure, and second, taking action steps to move forward. John Maxwell’s “Fail Forward” and Ryan Babineaux/John Krumboltz’s “Fail Fast, Fail Often” are great resources for this topic. What happens, though, when you are in a risk-averse environment or your leader fears failure? Likely, failing forward is not tolerated; it may not be said in words but is demonstrated in action.
