Failure is not to be admired, rather not wasting failure is to be admired.– Christopher M. Kelly
Failure does not need to be the end. We all try things and fail, it is one of the main ways we learn and grow, and arguably it is the only way we attain success. Failure and getting back up and trying again are the stuff of epic legends and blockbuster movies.
However, espousing the notion that one’s employees should be able to fail and learn is easier than implementing company policy that does so.
