There are companies where it is normal to talk about mistakes and failures, and there are companies where all you hear is success, success, success.
Of course, the latter still make mistakes. It’s just that their culture makes it very difficult to go out there and say: “here, I have done this, and I was wrong”. So, mistakes are repeated over time. People feel stuck, learning is at a minimum, frustration rises.
Fortunately, there is something very concrete that leaders can do. They can share their own failures as learning opportunity for their own group.
It always starts from the top.
