Using adversity to your advantage

Hard knocks can teach you as much as great experiences can. But to unlock the lessons of hardship, emerging leaders need two things:
  1. Reassurance from the people above them, voiced in statements like “We don’t blame you for what went wrong.”

  2. Assessment, presented in statements like “Do you understand what went wrong and can you prevent it from happening again?”
