Everyone rushes to the ‘rescue’ of the poor worker from the clutches of the incompetent ‘manager’. So why would you even want to think about getting your boss promoted? Be damn good at your job. 2.

    Failing well is when the failure can be compartmentalized or contained and there are redundancies or options to recover and there are built-in systems that provide early warning signs. Each of us defines our own successes and failures in different ways. Also, not all failures are created equal. Some can be preventable especially when they happen in known circumstances and controlled environments. Others are designed to occur such as those that happen when working in the context of discovery and innovation. The bottom line is that we are all looking for success not failures.
