About this event

Psychological safety is the bedrock for inclusion and innovation. But many teams do not have high levels of psychological safety.

Amy Edmondson, Ph.D., HBS professor, and book author of The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth writes: “it isn’t about being nice. It’s about giving candid feedback, openly admitting mistakes, and learning from each other.”

This event is a celebration of failure. It uses the intimacy of storytelling to change attitudes towards trying new things, change beliefs about ourselves, and ultimately, change the culture of work.

Come to hear three vulnerable stories about managing failure and stay to ask questions and contribute to a community of learning.

  • Matt Doar - Some pride, some prejudice: "I knew I could migrate those Jira issues, so why did they mess me up?"
  • Anita Kalmane - Once upon a time, I signed up our company to cooperate with an external party where we'd invite teenagers to our company and show them how it is to work for an IT department, so they'd gain interest in studying anything engineering related. Sounds easy, right? Well, it didn't go as smoothly as I expected...
  • Ashley Faus - Have you ever fought hard to bring in a new tool to support a big initiative? What happens when it flops? Ashley will share her take-aways from trying, and failing, to create change across multiple teams.

This event will be very informal--storytelling among friends. During the event, we encourage you to unmute and ask questions of our speakers or comment with your reactions.
