We are taught at an early age to strive for success and avoid failure. But there is a huge problem with this advice. Failure is an important component to success. Failure is how we learn and how we identify what won’t work.
Join us for this provocative topic about using and rebranding failure to help you achieve the success you are striving for in your life. Ellenore has a lot of relevant experience as a college drop-out who has both achieved notable successes and well as experienced more than her fair share of failures.
During this workshop, you will learn more about the importance of definitions, rebranding, and failing fast; you will also walk away with concrete actions you can immediately take to implement the learning.
