Henry Stewart has been featured on the Henry Stewart Talks website (not affiliated with us!) with a talk about the importance of celebrating mistakes.
“If you ask people what they most like about working for Happy, it’s often about that there is a no blame culture, where they feel if they do their best and get it wrong, we’ll actually celebrate it.”
Organisations such as Google, HCL and Tata all famously celebrate staff mistakes as it helps to encourage innovation in the workplace. Google rewarded the developers of Google Wave, a failed product, while Tata created a prize for the Best Failed Idea.
How could your organisations celebrate failure as a way to encourage innovation?
