If Leaders Are Leaners, Failure vs. Success

Hey everyone, this post is called Failure vs. Success. This morning a came across a video from an ad agency ceo and he says something interesting about his company and how they deal with failure. Watch this:

Most of us have grown up hearing that we learn from our mistakes/failures and in-turn become better people or leaders. Alex Bogusky, says that his company doesn’t even acknowledge failure. Think about it, what if your boss, or if you are the boss, goes around and simply erases all failures from the company walls, files and memories.

To me, this sounds like a GREAT boss to work for! However, if my boss never allows me to understand my failure, and just erases them all, what have I learned? What will I learn?

So the QUESTION is: Do YOU believe that leaders learn from success or failure? (LEAVE A COMMENT)

To me this topic is oozing with spiritual meaning. Do we, as believers, know someone who takes our failures away? Do we have a book that gives of understanding of our failures? This would be a great illustrating video for a sermon on the Gospel and our continual growing knowledge of ourselves in light of the Gospel.

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14
