In this refreshing keynote, Chris Dyer shows how constantly trying to avoid mistakes can be even more detrimental than the occasional slip-up. With today’s changing business landscape, innovation is everything. But to drive innovation, employees can’t be paralyzed by self-doubt or the fear of failure. Chris will show how accepting (and expecting) to fail from wrong decisions or poor outcomes is actually a hallmark of good culture. Audience members will learn how to make more room for creativity and healthy risk taking when it matters most. Making mistakes doesn’t have to be painful. From minor errors to epic failures, come learn how your face-palm moments can lead to colossal business success.
