Failure: An introspective series on those I’ve created and endured

I recently posted about Hiring Internally and it turned out to be about the failure in leadership that I had on a project. I’m fine with that. For those of you that don’t know, I fail. I do so spectacularly (sometimes) and regularly. Welcome to my realm. What I do, however, that may (or may not) separate me, is spend considerable time thinking about the reasons for, actions taken during and result of those failures.

In the spirit of Scott C. Reynolds’ recently started series baring all for critcism, I’m going to do the same. I’m going to openly document my failures. I’ll do my best to make them detailed and comprehensive, but I will invariably miss something. Please offer your thoughts and criticism. I’m a big boy and I can take them. Hopefully you can take something from one of these and learn from it. If not, unleash your hounds and tell me how I did it wrong and why you would have done it differently. I need to learn too after all.

I’ll keep updating this post with links to all of the posts in the series. I’m not sure how long this will be or what content it will cover. When I get bored with it I’ll probably stop. When I think of something I’ll probably write. Either of those might be my first failure in this series.
