The art of failing, inspired by mindful parenting

Simon Sinek claims that the closest thing to leadership is parenting.
I absolutely agree. Parenting is solidly researched and may be a valuable inspiration for professional growth.

In this talk I will explain how you can overcome a business failure by applying mindful parenting principles. Here are some of the topics we may cover:
– What is important for a child who freely run in a playground and why it matters in business?
– What should we celebrate in the office – successes or failures?
– Why do we have problem in treating failure naturally?
– What is the hardest thing to accept when failure happens?
– How much do you believe in your child? And your team?
– Should you show your disappointment if you are a parent? And a leader?
– What is the golden rule if you want your child to innovate?

If you have a minute now and you are a parent or spend time with children, think how you react, when a child fails at something. What do you feel? What do you do? What do you say?

I hope we hear your thoughts during the presentation!
