Many managers perceive and react to failure inappropriately and therefore have trouble learning from it—leading to more failures down the road. Many of us have at some point assigned (or avoided) blame in a self-serving way, only to suffer negative fallout; on the lip side, we may take self-criticism too far, resulting in paralysis and stagnation.
To foster and thrive in a productive work environment, we need to recognize and overcome these tendencies.
