Succeeding from Failure Process

  • Team Performance
    Teams are split into small groups of 4-6 people. Each
    team plans and executes a mission in the simulators.
    After the initial attempt, the team meets for debriefing,
    and looks for ways to improve results.
    This program emphasizes all aspects of teamwork, from
    working together, moving forward as a unit, and
    collective improvement.
  • Individual Performance
    In this workshop, your team experiences the debrief methodology, an air force methodology credited with driving excellence in air forces around the world.
    Participants are initially briefed on how to fly the F-35 and receive their mission. When their mission is complete, they come to the debriefing room, where they are equipped with the tools they need to significantly improve results in their second flight.
    Upon completing their second flight, your team measures improvement between the first and second attempt.

Creating a
Sustainable Process

There are the steps to our Succeeding from Failure process.

Psychology of Failure

The feelings and emotions following a failure are something we need to recognize. Admission of failure is the first step toward moving forward. This workshop begins with a failure, so participants can become familiar with it in a safe, neutral environment.

Debrief and Learn

Debrief and Learn from Unsuccessful Experiences – Using our debrief methodology, we begin by understanding what happened, and then drilling down to the root cause to understand why it happened by understanding that what and the why, we are able to develop practical next steps as we plan the How for our next mission.

Building Confidence

Before moving on to the next mission, we work with participants to build up their belief in themselves that they will succeed.

Success Delayers

What stops people from trying? Understanding this question is critical to recovering from an unsuccessful experience.

Understand Habits

Which habits delay our success? How can we break and reform happens to overcome failure? Understanding this is critical to overcoming and persevering.

Growth from failure

Take the valuable tools and skills learned in this workshop and implement them into every day personal and business situations.
