When was the last time you felt comfortable failing? I don't mean a little misstep; I mean trying something that you hoped would work out but it just didn't. It took time, resources and money to put together and it fell flat. What did that feel like? Did you worry that you would look ineffective in the eyes of your supervisor, peers, and employees? Did you vow never to try anything risky again so as to avoid failure? That doesn't do much for innovation, does it?
