Failers

tightrope

People shouldn’t label themselves as ‘failures’. Failing is a behaviour and there are different kinds. I’m starting to use the term ‘failer’ (TM):

Someone, with improvement as their purpose, deliberately operating at the edge of their ability which inevitably leads to learning opportunities.

If we don’t do the learning bit, then we can give ourselves a judgey label. Perhaps, ‘doofus’?

This comment started as a joke comment on a FaceBook post but I liked where it went, and thought to myself, “This is going straight to the pool room. ( I mean, my blog…)”

About Terry Williams - The Brain-Based Boss

I'm all about engaging people and helping you engage yours to influence behaviour to improve results - at work and at home. Maybe you're a manager, a salesperson, a leader, a parent, a presenter or an event organiser? You need to grab your people's attention, create some rapport, be memorable and influence behaviour change. How can we do that? I'm originally a trainer by trade, turned manager, turned comedian and partway back again. Author of 'THE GUIDE: How to kiss, get a job & other stuff you need to know', I write and speak about how to engage people, be they employees, family or yourself. How can we connect with people’s own internal motivations and help them use their own inner passions to drive towards productivity, success and happiness? And hopefully have a few laughs along the way... As a trainer facilitating learning and development in others, I find myself drawing on my own extensive business experience. I specialise in the delivery of high impact, customised training solutions for organisations that are serious about improving the performance and lives of their people.
