How Falling Short Leads to Catastrophe or Victory

How the short fall leads to disaster or victory

All those who reach a high level fall short.

There is no progress except falling short.

Progress is less and less each time.

Falling short – small failure – is easy to hide from others. It's easy to ignore and just press ahead.

What happens after you fail leads to disaster or victory. The catastrophe is hidden among all those who ignore small failures and tolerate small inconsistencies.

The main value of exploring small chess is learning.

The Truth about the Development of Learning Organizations:

The leaders of learning make it so cautious to explore a small and common failure to celebrate additional victories.

Ford lost $ 8.7 billion in the second quarter of 2008. Leaders hid their short-lived falls

The CEO, Alan Mulally, made sure to learn when he applauded and congratulated Mark Fields when Mark acknowledged a problem with the Ford Edge hatchback. (19459005) Fortune Magazine )

"If your team members are reluctant to confess ignorance, to express doubts or to challenge the prospect of a boss, the entire learning process is delayed. " Rita McGrath Columbia Business School.

Acknowledge that you are under 10 if you hope for a remarkable victory.

Think of something you do. On a scale of one to ten, where are you on the scale of the remarkable win in this field? (Go with your instinct.) How do you get closer to ten?

The path to a remarkable victory requires you to explore small failures – short falls.

Shortcut surfacing:

What can we learn by failing?
How could we simplify the complexity?
How could we clarify ambiguity?
How could we make performance a daily conversation?
How do we celebrate small victories?

Tip: Encourage the rocking boat.

"Ask someone else to weigh their expertise, even when (or especially when) you think it might challenge your own thinking." Amy Edmondson and Jeff Polzer Harvard School of Commerce

How could leaders make sure to discuss and learn from small chess?
