The Ultimate Motivator for Future Leaders

Posted July 07, 2011 1:11 PM

Leadership blogger Dan McCarthy writes that "failure is the first step on the road to success," because "bouncing back from failure calls on us to develop a whole set of skills that leaders need… street skills." Has success eluded you, as McCarthy puts it, because you eluded failure? What's stopping you from taking the risks necessary to become a leader? What do you think?

Seems fatally flawed to me.

I have seen far too many failures in management keep right on going without learning a thing let a lone accomplish any level of bettering the company itself.

The more correct and likely most gainful solution would be that if you fail at bettering the company through your actions you simply don't get paid.
