What you will learn:

We all experience failure at some point. But there is an exceptionally wide spectrum for how people (choose to) handle it, and how they are impacted by it.

This Elective infuses ideas from leading researchers (like James Clear, Brené Brown, Ian Robertson, and Simon Sinek) and is designed to help working professionals understand how to make failure work for themselves and their teams.

You will learn how and why failure happens, how to "hack" our mindset and behaviors to turn "failures" into positive experiences, and how to implement structures within your teams to promote long term growth.

This is not a presentation. It is an interactive workshop, where participants should expect to share, listen, and elevate one another. And, frankly, despite the seriousness of the topic - "Hacking Failure" is a light-hearted, fun experience that is sure to leave a lasting impression.

About the instructor:

Hi All - I'm David. I'm a Facilitator and Coach who has spent the last 10 years at Google (and 20+ years overall) uplevelling Sellers and Executives in various sales and business competencies - from Everyday Creativity to Objection Handling to How to be a Great Manager to Hacking Failure (and more). And, frankly, I love it! This work is what get's me up in the morning.

My approach is very human and learner-centric -- meaning everything is really about YOU and how YOU can be better. I take powerful schools of thought and cutting-edge research and engineer learner experiences so you can develop and apply skills, not just learn information. Part of that approach means hearing and learning from you. So all participants should expect their perspectives to be shared, valued, and connected to the learning outcomes - which honestly make my sessions fun.

And, of course, what kind of Bio would this be without some educational information. So, you should definitely know -
  • I am a proud graduate of Univesity of Wisconsin-Madison (undergrad) and a die-hard Badgers fan.
