“Fun with Failure” explores our relationship to failure and the lessons we’ve learned from it. Everyone, every team, and every business experiences failure at some point; but it’s how you deal with it that really matters. “Fun with Failure” was created as an antidote to the “perfect” social media filters that bombard us everyday. Too often people only see our crowning achievements but not the work, process and struggle that went into them.

Ultimately, it’s a podcast about individual and organizational resilience.
