Taking Risks: Facing Failure

The majority of our most effective initiatives are not usually completely successful straight away. Their eventual success comes through honing and refining our thinking and practice in the light of experiencing different degrees of failure.

How we respond to failure thus becomes critical in terms of our capacity to develop new areas of ministry, as well as for our own personal growth.

This day explores different attitudes to failure, as well as different types of failure. It also asks how we might embrace failure as a vital element of learning, and encourage the development of cultures in which risk, and a healthy sense of adventure, is welcomed as opposed to being seen as something to be avoided at all costs.

CPAS can run this in your diocese as part of IME/CME training, at a diocesan conference or as a session within a wider diocesan leadership programme.
