"Failure Is Success In Progress" - - - Albert Einstein
"I Hate To Fail, But I Love To Learn" - - - @NickInSFO at #SMoP14

Failure, and the fear of it, not only constrains the open hearts of non-profit technologists everywhere, it stifles creative potential for success. The word "fail" is so much in our current pop lexicon that it inspired the website www.epicFAIL.com, and TheFailcon, a whole conference about failure!

Risking to fail is a critical part of the learning process. Join NTEN Leading Change Award 2014 winner, SFGMC'S Jim Nickerson, with colleagues, Frank Strona and Yee Won Chong as they host, present and facilitate this 90-minute interactive workshop to explore "Fail"ing For The Win.  

Attendees will:

  • Hear three five-minute mini case studies of organizations that planned, implemented, failed and learned from that failure.
  • Take part in small group discussions around the characteristics of "Safe-To-Fail" and what "Safe-To-Fail" organizations look like.
  • Leave with a "Safe-To-Fail Contract" outlining actionable ideas you can implement right away
  • Be able to submit an "Elevator Pitch of Failure" to the speakers and have them respond to you with brief personalized feedback post conference.
