If You Can’t Fail, You Can’t Succeed: How to Practice Risk

The prevailing trend for students today involves emotional safety above all. Over time, this has created a risk-averse culture, where many would rather play it safe than step out of their comfort zone to challenge themselves. This session offers practical ideas to help you model risk in a responsible manner to inspire your students to aim high and learn to practice resilience when they experience failure. Designed to be interactive with small group discussion time built in so strategies can be developed and shared. Prepare to see failure in a whole new way!
