I was at an improv workshop yesterday given by a friend of mine. Her workshop was called Executive Presence and seemed to be aimed at women who needed to build confidence so that they could have more of that "presence." I went for the improv - and to see what she did. She'll come to one of my workshops and we might do some collaboration.
At one point in the workshop the leaders wanted us to share a failure and then clap our hands and say "Failure. Ta da!"
They said, "Once the failure has happened, let it go. Everyone else has. Identify what can be learned."
I wanted to plaster hubski stickers all over the place.
As we say in Canada, what can be learned, eh?
