Brilliant Mistakes

More for our failures series (1, 2): an interesting interview with Wharton professor Paul Schoemaker on his new book Brilliant Mistakes: Finding Success on the Far Side of Failure. “Schoemaker identifies two ways to take advantage of the opportunities that can flow from mistakes: being open to learning from professional or personal errors to identify new ways forward, and deliberately making mistakes, or challenging conventional wisdom, in order to speed up learning within your organization. He argues that not making mistakes may be the greatest mistake of all.” And don’t miss the Brilliant Mistakes Contest (no, don’t suggest my university’s decision to hire me, please).
