Michigan Engineering pres.

Three Failure Fables | A CID Lecture

Flip the fear of failure into the anticipation of opportunity.

Peter Adriaens Peter Adriaens

John Maxwell’s book Failing Forward states: "The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure."

Too often, the word “failure” has a negative connotation. We’re conditioned to the binary options of either failure or success. In reality, failure is a lot more nuanced and can even be intentional – to “test things out.”

Peter Adriaens is a professor of engineering, finance and entrepreneurship at the University of Michigan with appointments in three Schools. Join him as he tells three short stories from his career on failure and risk taking - and the lessons learned to achieve positive outcomes.

Failure and risk taking are close cousins. It’s those risk takers who embrace this relation who can flip the fear of failure into the anticipation of opportunity.

Food will be provided. Limited capacity.
