Smooth Failing: What Disaster Can Teach You about Succeeding

Course Overview
Because the processes of innovation and experimentation are directly connected to failure, some enterprises deliberately seek out employees whose track records reflect disaster as well as success. The best-selling author of J.K. Lasser's tax books, Barbara Weltman provides examples of how many individuals' understanding of the process of failure later became critical to their success in the business world.
