When Failing isn't Flailing

"I wanted to find a place I could own the role. ...You know, we tend to our houses better when we own them."

On this episode of the Agents of Innovation podcast, David Knies speaks with Colin Hunter, CEO and Founder of Potential Squared, a business created to inspire leaders to think differently about how they engage and develop people. Colin is also author of the new book Be More Wrong: How Failure Makes You an Outstanding Leader. They talk about failing fast and iterating rapidly, using actors when prototyping, design thinking with playgrounds, the problems with using money as your metric for performance, and why Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is an inspiration.
