How to Motivate Failure

Bookmark and Share
  1. Trish fails at Task A.
  2. Manager Bill yells.
  3. Manager Bill assigns Trish menial work.

What results?

Manager Bill destroys Trish's potential to rock.

  • Productivity drains.
  • Profits plummet.
  • People cry.

How do you optimize Trish after failure?

Simply, do this:

  • Give Trish another chance to prove herself.

If you punish failure, people become more focused on failure -- instead of rocking the actual work.

They're thinking:

  1. "Dude! What if I fail again?"
  2. "I cannot fail! I will not fail!"
  3. "I can't make one more mistake!"

Result: they fail.

The Focus Beyond

Instead, when people know failure ain't-no-thing-but-a-chicken-wing-on-a-string, they start focusing on the kick-assing part.

  • Full focus: away from failure.
  • Full focus: on success.

Win for you, her, and the world.

You ain't no failure! Hooray!
