About This Class

The Big “F” = Failure.

Have you ever felt paralyzed by the fear of making a mistake? Is your time limited and precious, making any failure feel fatal to your growth? This class is for you.

In this class we’ll be practicing techniques Innovative Executives the world over use to turn mistakes into ideas.  Our best and brightest companies are lead by the world’s top innovative thinkers that are proud to embrace continuous learning, (i.e. failing fast and moving on).

I’ll be giving you a peek into the mindset that will take you from a ordinary employee into an innovative team member ready to grow their career. I’ll be giving you advice on how to successfully handle failure, learn from mistakes, and how to build your courage to take more calculated leaps.

It’s time to ditch the fear and start making career decisions like a world class pro!
