Failure Happens. Let's talk about it for In-Person,
Remote or Hybrid Working Environments.
Bringing your organization's core values to life and cultivating a culture that fosters resilience and innovation begins by exploring how your team reacts to failure. The Failure Toy® is a game of balance, experimentation, and a whole lot of laughter, designed to get you talking about failure. In as little as 90 minutes, players gain powerful insights into how they react to risk, feedback, competition, and the expectations of their teammates.
We offer a variety of ready-to-go, professional development workshops to suit online, in-person or hybrid work environments. Book a call today to see how we can help.
Meet the Failure Toy®
The Failure Toy is a game of balance and experimentation that helps players develop healthier, more productive relationships with failure.
Ideal for players aged 9 to 99, the game itself is simple - but the insights it elicits are as complex and unique as the players themselves.
How it works
Before your workshop
Failure is as complex as the individuals who experience it. We book a 30 minute consultation to establish your key goals and themes for the session.
During your workshop
Your team will go through a series of games to explore the dynamics of failure. Facilitators will then lead a debrief centred around your specific goals and theme.
After your workshop
Your team will leave with fresh insights and specific ideas for building a healthier relationship with failure.
Failure happens all the time. Your team needs to learn how to not only cope with failure, but come back stronger. Gaining insights on how to anticipate, navigate, and cope with failure will support your team in:
- Building their EQ muscle.
- Practicing how to give and receive feedback.
- Exploring how they approach risks & rewards.
- Understanding the role of failure in design & innovation.
- Defining what success means (goal setting).

Experience Design and
Change Management Lead
“At Dell, we used the Failure Toy as part of a large-scale design thinking initiative. The Failure Toy provided the high performing employees leading this initiative the opportunity to investigate their personal reactions to failure, and to see how these reactions directly influence behaviour. The Failure Toy workshop reminded us that building a culture that learns from failure starts by equipping individuals with the language, mindset and courage to talk about it.”
