#GuildChat for 01/5/18: Learning from Mistakes

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, January 5 at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is on Learning from Mistakes.GuildChat_Logo

And we’re back! With 2017 in the rear view mirror we can look ahead or look back and in this chat we kind of do both.

This week we look at mistakes – those blunders, misses and oops’s that we recognize either the moment they happen or some time later on. And although it can be a a cringe-worthy reflective moment, it’s also an opportunity when planning for the next steps forward.

In this week’s GuildChat we’ll discuss how we can learn from mistakes (ours or others), how to let go and how mistakes can be the launching pad to greater success. Don’t hesitate to bring forward some of your errors (as I’m sure we’ll ask) and share how you used them to grow and succeed!

Join us THIS Friday!
