Episode #9 - Why failure is a belief you need to give up

The Innovate For Impact podcast is for leaders in the social sector who want to create a more innovative and impactful organisation.  Each episode is jam packed with tips on how you can deliver more impact, and we bring you stories from other leaders in the sector that are making a difference.

Dan and Tracey talk about the mindset of perceiving failure as the final destination. They believe that failure instead is just part of a learning process that can lead towards gaining the results you desire.  

Here’s a taste of what Dan and Tracey cover in the conversation.

  • Tracey gives an example of Thomas Edison and quotes him, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” 

  • Tracey states when a leader has a mindset in believing failure is learning, it can facilitate innovation, where experimentation acts as the means to achieve the end. 

  • Dan believes in reprogramming oneself so that you don’t think about failure, instead learning to focus on new ideas, innovation, and experimentation.
