Today the ABR blog is helping you “stay in the know” by sharing an article that we found interesting. We think you will too.

Innovation. It’s a word we hear all the time, right? But what does it really look like and how do we entice people to be more innovative?

Innovation is an “…emotional, not logical problem. Innovation efforts are risky and can (by definition) fail. And failure can sting. So if you haven’t figured out how to take some of the sting out of failure, you won’t get innovation.”

Read on to learn about the three tactics to “take the sting out of failure” at your organization.
