What’s the Use of Failure?
Eric Dawson, Echoing Green/Peace First
Failure is, in theory, an accepted inevitability of the entrepreneur experience. In reality, the story is a little different when it comes to social impact. It’s no surprise that social change leaders experience a ton of pressures to “get it right”: the mission is important to their communities, they need to motivate their teams, or they’re trying to inspire people to think about old problems in new ways. Even though failure can be an innovator’s best learning tool, how money is tied to impact can leave little room to experience and learn from it. So how can the ecosystem rewrite the role of failure to sustain innovation and deepen support to social impact leaders?
