It seems like we have two options in life: succeed or fail. Get what you worked for and you’re a success. Fall short of that, and you’re a failure. We think about these two outcomes as if they were binary.
But maybe it’s time we rethink failure. That is, how we can use failure to provide advantages that we might not gain otherwise. In this week’s episode, you’ll learn about how to reframe failure.
This week’s episode is all about how you can bounce back from failure quickly & easily. I discussed extensively with Naki Osutei strategies she used to reframe failure.
Naki is the Associate Vice President, Social Impact (Canada) for the Global Corporate Citizenship department at TD Bank. Naki joined TD in 2017 to help develop The Ready Commitment, TD’s global corporate citizenship platform. Today her team helps bring The Ready Commitment to life through: corporate philanthropy; the engagement of employees beyond traditional volunteering; and strategic initiatives including the TD Ready Challenge, an annual innovation competition.
Prior to TD, Naki worked Executive Talent Management at a financial institution supporting the development of executives and ‘near-executives’ while also working to diversify the executive pipeline; was an HR Director for, and led the corporate diversity and legacy strategies for the TORONTO2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games; and developed several city-building projects and leadership development programs at CivicAction, including co-creating DiverseCity Fellows, North America’s first “civic MBA”. She is also an avid volunteer and has served on the Boards of Seneca College, West Neighbourhood House, BMW Foundation’s Young Leaders Transatlantic Forum and was Co-Director of Curation and Coaching for TEDxToronto.
This is one episode you should not miss and share with everyone you love.
