Dealing with Failure

by Kate Moor March 24, 2010

One of the best articles I have read about the recent Toyota challenges. I have watched with interest the reaction of some people who have taken a ‘holier than thou’ attitude toward Toyota. Brings to mind the – people in glass houses don’t you think?

Quote from article:

You see, what people seem to be forgetting is every one of us has or will fail.

That is true. It is how we respond to failure that is the real measure of us as individuals and as employees within companies.

I for one won’t be bailing out on Toyota. I will be looking with interest to see how they recover from this set-back. Perhaps those who have been most vocal might to step back and do a bit of soul searching. Could be a lesson in there for them.
