REFINED BY FAILURE

BREAKING RULES AND GETTING BURNED

There is no question about it: failure hurts. But it is also an invitation to clarify our values, actions and relationships. In both business and our personal lives, failure is an invitation for wisdom – but only if we choose to listen. Learning from failure brings us closer to success. And if we use it to drive us forward, then failure itself is only temporary.

REFINING THROUGH FAILURE

The Guide

In Refining Through Failure: The Guide, a companion to Refined by Failure, Lloyd takes you deeper into the concepts behind being refined by your failures, rather than defining yourself by them. You will learn: Actionable steps to take to minimize repeat failures. How to be intentional about driving your own life story. How to use the lessons learned through failure. How using the EDGE Method can help your employees succeed—even when they fail. The only true failure is the one you don’t learn from. Become a "Trust and Inspire" leader by being refined, not defined, by your failures.

WHAT LEADERS SAY ABOUT REFINED BY FAILURE

“At the end of the day, Lloyd forces you to dig deeper than you ever wanted to dig, and gets you to think about things in a new way just by continuing to ask questions. Anyone who really wants to see their business in a new way would benefit from something like this.”

Mark Gilbraith | Managing Partner | Caprock Building Systems

 “This is how coaching should be, an ongoing partnership that provides accountability, encouragement, growth—a few meetings and some pointers aren’t going to fix all your problems. The key is continuous improvement."
