This episode comes from a conversation Erik recently had with Joe White, a business coach, when they were talking about different ways of allowing your employees to grow within your organization and in life. Believe it or not, you do that by allowing them to fail. We don’t mean letting them fail miserably or firing them. Give them the ability to make their own decisions and deal with the consequences.
They won’t learn if you spoon-feed them exactly what to do and what not to do, you will not have a very vibrant workforce. Allow them to fail and they will become better.
