May 13, 2014

Failure happens. But when it does, it presents an opportunity for learning that can be of great value. Join us on Tuesday, May 13, at 2pm EDT, to learn how individuals, teams and organizations can turn failure into a catalyst for adaptation, innovation and resilience.
We are delighted to welcome Ashley Good, Founder and CEO of Fail Forward. After a year in Cairo with the UN Environment Program and another in Ghana with Engineers Without Borders, Ashley knew it was time for some bold new approaches to some of our toughest challenges. She saw amazing people whose creativity and potential for learning was stifled due to risk aversion and fear of failure. She founded Fail Forward and is focused on helping organizations use failure as the catalyst for learning. Join us as we imagine what it could mean to incorporate more intentional learning around failure into our personal and professional lives.

As always, our monthly webinars are free for IAP2 members and only $50 for non-members. Click here to register.
