Workshop "Cross-cultural dialogue: Unlocking the potential of failure"
Failure is universal. By nature of our humanity, failure unites us. We have all experienced it, but rarely do we utilize it as the profoundly powerful tool it is: the catalyst to build bravery and resilience in our daily lives.
How might we change if we were set free from the fear of failure? What might we accomplish if we learned how to harness it and turn it into a catalyst for our betterment? This intercultural discussion delves into techniques, strategies, and resources selected from the world’s leading thinkers on the subject. Cultural sensitivity is foundational to this exploration of personal storytelling, facing our fears, building bravery, and ultimately, employing the power of resilience. A recommended reading list and directory of specialists is provided.
