PDC72513 - Mistakes Leaders Make

Course Details

Course Summary

Leaders love to be associated with success – the creation of new products, the capture of new markets, new inventions and innovations. While most people are aware that business leaders have character flaws, less attention is paid to the genuine mistakes and failures that they make. Success is always accompanied by failure. Business leaders are those who have been said to fail more often than others, and the product of this failure is success. Contemporary leadership is dependent on mistake-making, and while not encouraged, the consequence of taking risks can result in positive outcomes. It is often from monumental mistakes and failures that effective leaders rise and make their most important contributions and achieve their great successes. In this online short course, you will examine mistakes and failures as a critical part of contemporary leadership development; and reflect on the impact of mistakes, consequences and outcomes on leadership styles.
