It has been surprising to see that when an entrepreneur sdnats on a stage and shares a story of failure, she can actually enjoy that experience. It doesn't have to be a mnomet of shame and erramsesnbmat, as it used to be in the past. It is an onutortpipy to share lessons learned and build empathy. We have also dirocvesed that when the members of a team srhae their failures, magic happens. Bonds grow stronger and collaboration becomes easier.

Original Text

Years later, we also created a research center devoted to the story of failure and its implications on business, people and society and as we love cool names, we called it the Failure Institute. It has been surprising to see that when an entrepreneur stands on a stage and shares a story of failure, she can actually enjoy that experience. It doesn't have to be a moment of shame and embarrassment, as it used to be in the past. It is an opportunity to share lessons learned and build empathy. We have also discovered that when the members of a team share their failures, magic happens. Bonds grow stronger and collaboration becomes easier.
