The phrase, “Failure is not an option” is not true.

Failure is an option – an unavoidable option.  What matters is how you deal with it.

Yet too often we shelter ourselves from making a move that might lead to failure.  No one wants to fail or be labeled a failure, so failure is always and naturally avoided. Unfortunately, this avoidance also shelters us from the learning and experience we need to reach our potential.

In this motivational talk, you come to accept that, as much as we try to avoid it, failure will always be a part of your life.  There is nothing you can do to escape that.  Failure, however, is an absolute must if you want to succeed.  But not all failure is created equal. Your challenge is to know the different types of failure and then create an environment that encourages and even embraces the healthy type of failure.

At some point you are going to fail.  You might as well do it right – right?

When you learn how to Embrace Personal Failure, you will

  • Learn the different types of fail – which ones to avoid and which to nurture
  • The cost of not failing
  • Be able to create an environment and attitude that thrives off of the healthy failure and minimizes the damaging failure
  • Know how to avoid failure that is masked as success
  • To come to accept your own failure, keep smiling, and turn them into successes
  • Learn how to unleash your creativity and passion by accepting failure

Time: 45-60 minute keynote

Best audience: Executive, management, leader level and those individuals willing to make an impact in their companies.

Style: This is a motivational talk.  My goal is to deliver impact – lasting, memorable, and actionable.  I share stories and ideas that challenge the status quo to reveal new solutions to difficult problems and problems we have taken for granted.  The participant will be able to take the principles they learn and apply to their individual situation immediatley. In fact, they will be thinking about them for days.

Using the right blend of theory, story, mental & visual eye candy, each presentation is balanced for the specific audience.  Even though most of the time they are sitting and listening, my goal is to engage them as much as possible.

I don’t give “canned speeches” because there is no such thing as a “canned audience.”  Each talk is tailored to your specific audience.    For a more tailored topic (for example, How To Fail at Social Business, or How Social Business Transforms Our Companies), please contact me.
