About this event

Failure seems to be the flavour of the month. International brands are failing. Multinational companies are failing. Established systems are failing. Politicians and leaders are failing left, right and centre. What does this mean for us?

If you're building a business or leading a team, what do you need to know about failure and your relationship with it? What needs to change?

We are starting to have more open, honest conversations about mental health and it's relationship to failure. Mental Health Awareness Week and public figures sharing their stories have helped. But there is still a huge stigma surrounding leadership and mental health.

Are leaders with mental health challenges capable? How is failure portrayed when mental health is involved?

In an 'anti-failure' culture, how can we lead more authentically as entrepreneurs and leaders? Join serial entrepreneur, leadership coach and founder of A Life Less Ordinary Wanted - Naomi Jane - as she explores these questions. She will share what it's like to run a business with depression and how she's learning to own her failures and remain true to herself along the way.

Takeaways

  • Learn to have more open and honest conversations about failure
  • It's ok to ask for help. Learn to encourage each other to do this, for the sake of our own mental health, our teams, and our businesses
  • Find out why no part of successful leadership is about suffering alone
