Fail Faster will dive deeply into one of design thinking’s key tenets: Fail early, fail often. Students will explore ways to: [1] become comfortable¬†with uncertainty, [2] develop tools to navigate situations of failure, and [3] learn to turn failures into opportunities. This exercised-based workshop will examine the physiological impact of failure and practice the psychological traits and the power of resilience through hands-on activities. Participants will acquire techniques to help them navigate, bounce back, grow and even flourish in the face of their failures.
