Seth Godin on Why Failure Isn't Fatal

December 9, 2015 | Posted By: Connor Watkins

We've heard a lot about taking risk, jumping in and being brave. In this video, however, Seth talks about how to take what he calls "appropriate risks." In other words, risks you can take that will keep you in the game even when you fail, turning the vision of failure into something more than just being fatal.

In third follow-up seminar to Leadercast Lexington Chamber this Friday, we'll listen to best-selling author Seth Godin talk about the five pillars of bravery, why it is the brave people who create the future and ask the question: "Are you going to do something worth talking about?"

Leadercast is an experience you don't want to miss. RSVP for this free event so that you can get a taste of what next year's event will be all about.
