Shawn Nason, Executive Director, Xavier Center for Innovation's curator insight, September 19, 2014 3:11 PM

The opening statement of the blog sums up my thoughts...


"You know you need to innovate. Between the technology, the differences in generations, and growing membership demands, you know your association must change, but how do you become more risk tolerant and less afraid of failure?" 


For the first time in my life, and after 20+ years ,I am in Higher Ed and thought Corporate America was slow...NO WAY! You talk about politics? I have never seen anything like this! 


These four tips are great to follow. The one that stands out is the, "Fear of Failure!" Professors do not want to fail. The want to do everything right. As we start down the path of influencing the culture here at Xavier, our motto is going to be, "FailFast, FailCheap" and "Go forth and set the world on fire!"

Don Cloud's curator insight, September 15, 2014 11:16 AM

Becoming a "Fearless Leader" (see article) is only the first step.  It's the next step that is absolutely critical -- and that is for this "Fearless Leader" to grow other leaders and their people to do the very same thing ... in order to relinquish their fears and unbridle their talents towards the greater purpose that brought you all together.

 

So the more important question is, how are you growing "Fearless Leaders" in your organization?
