At the last Indianapolis “Leadership Rules!” meetup, we had some great discussions on celebrating wins and rethinking failures. I realized how infrequently my team actually celebrates our wins. We tend to hold off on celebrating while we work toward the end of the project, only to then just slide into our next project. When considering how my team handles failures, I recognized that my team doesn’t always acknowledge the lessons learned from any stumbling blocks we hit.
To help my team celebrate more of our wins and rethink our failures, I came up with a “Wins and Wisdoms” retrospective that I explain in my LinkedIn post “Celebrating your team’s Wins and Wisdoms.”
