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 under 2 hours, players gain powerful insights into how they react to risk, feedback, competition, and the expectations of their teammates. 

We offer a combination 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.

  • 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 into your relationship with failure and specific ideas for building a healthier relationship with it.

  • Team Takeaways

    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)
