The Goal Is Not The Point

Have you ever asked yourself how you deal with failure? Do you tolerate it, or do you handle it nicely?

In today’s episode of the Beauty of Conflict, CrisMarie and Susan discuss a recent experience they had with a client whose new team members had a “reward according to performance” mentality, while the founder is more inclined to appreciate the process and to learn regarding the experience, even if they failed. All of this is part of your organization’s culture and how people understand company values and our own egos. They also share experiences from the past on receiving feedback, failing, trying again, and using it to propel their next endeavor. Even in failure or success, there is a chance of learning and growth to become a better version of yourself; keep that in mind!

If you are an organization’s leader, we hope you find this episode helpful or make you think twice about the culture you’re driving inside your team.

If you’d like us to speak at your organization about conflict, stress, team-building, or leadership, work with your team virtually, or coach you or leaders on your team, reach out to us!
