For those who missed it, we missed you too!
For us, it was 'mission accomplished'. We enjoyed a 'creative learning party' with a great guest list. What makes it real for us is the special buzz we get from sharing our ideas with such open, thoughtful, responsive people. And the excitement of wondering what we might have stimulated in wider thinking and practice. You can still join in!
Please do take the time to read The Failure Files, our blog, and join in more here in our discussion group. As you know we're focussing on our UK Tour right now, so we'd love it if you continue the conversations online. It's the best way we can think of to join up the hundreds of people who are finding their own glory in failure.
Our next appearance will be at the Learned Helplessness Conference in Hemel HempsteadIf you'd like a customised failure seminar or workshop for your network let us know! You can get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
