Episode 115 Premium: The Fine Art Of Failing... And Living To Tell About It

"Why on earth did you decide to write about failing on a project?" is the first question that we ask Leadership Expert Stan Levanduski in this interview on his essay "The Fine Art Of Failing... And Living To Tell About It". The essay is part of the book The Advantage of Leadership, which Stan co-authored.

Once we have this important question out of the way (and Stan's answer may surprise you), we discuss why we fail on our projects, how we normally react to such failures, why we need someone to blame, how to be proactive and most importantly how to recover from such a failure both professionally and personally.

We also continue to give away two copies of Stan's PM Lecture Leadership Challenges of Complex Projects. This is a 4.5 hour long, in-depth project leadership training for our subscribers. Listen in to learn how to participate.
