Fail Forward: Falling Short and Climbing Up
When we see successful faculty members lecture in front of class or a coach leading a university team, we can see that they have achieved much. But we don’t always know the path that brought them there. On February 8, 2018 several FASS faculty members and a Dal Tigers coach participated in an informal forum where they shared stories about the failures and experiences that led to their own successes. The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences presented this public forum as a way of letting students and community members know that they are not alone in facing personal and professional hardships on their journeys. In fact, failure is not something to be avoided, rather it might be a key ingredient toward growth, success and happiness in your life.
