CLE Solutions Discusses the Importance of Success

In July 25, 2014

The wisdom of failure is the latest trend and can be an encouraging approach for people facing issues of all types. Continuous negative reinforcement can be demoralizing and CLE Solutions believes that positive feedback is also necessary. Success offers that positive feedback.

Failure is not the driving force of growth. Growth is a mixture of mistakes and accomplishments. If one faces a constant stream of failure, and still does not realize success despite learning from it, it is simply failure—not a growth opportunity. Sometimes mistakes do not teach lessons and they merely annoy you. There is little to learn from forgetting to charge your smart phone.

Success confirms what works. Lolly Wolly Doodle, a children’s clothing boutique, failed when it attempted to outsource manufacturing to China. While this incident prompted change, it was the success of a new strategy that taught management the most.

Lolly Wolly Doodle converted into a smaller business model marketed primarily by Facebook. By posting designs every day, producing them in small quantities, and then getting immediate feedback from purchasers, Lolly Wolly Doodle was able to build a market and use that success to improve its products. Profits increased. It now provides clothing in larger quantities and would not have been able to do so without the success of its Facebook approach.

Celebrate success and look into what was done correctly to lead to it. Be aware that with the current trend regarding failure, some workplaces are almost hostile to people discussing success. Do not cultivate that type of environment. Avoid judgment when failure arises but also recognize the success. Share the tips that lead to it. Make sure it gets the same attention as mistakes.

CLE Solutions promotes a positive workplace that includes learning from success and not just focusing on mistakes. Success is not only exciting, but it is necessary to preserve working strategies.
