You talk, we listen: here are two responses from our 2018 Member Survey:
I want to see ELGL really get in the weeds about failures and struggles. It’s hard to push for innovation, and government employees aren’t very known for their forward thinking spirits. Let’s change that, but we’ll only learn if we’re really promoting that discussion, and I think a really important discussion we need to have is what has and hasn’t worked and why because that’s how we really learn and I’m not really seeing that from ELGL. Let’s get to the point and to the core of the issues.
Leadership lessons would be helpful. Also, sharing information about failures. It’s always nice to learn from other people’s mistakes. i.e. Fantastic Flop Fridays
You can use this blog to tell a story about a time that a program or project you worked on failed. You can also share the iterative process behind innovation – what did you try (and try again) before you find the innovation that you implemented? Or, you can even talk about something that you think could work in your organization but you’ve met resistance or pushback to even get the idea off the ground.
