Tonight (David Letterman’s birthday) straight from the Home Office in Wahoo, Nebraska, we have the Top Ten list in Embracing Failure. I normally didn’t have enough time to lounge in front of the late-late night Letterman Show during college, but I often tried to catch the always witty Top Ten Lists at the start of every broadcast.

Today’s Top Ten List comes to you courtesy of CBS News’ piece “10 Ways Failure Leads to Success

  1. Change Management –
  2. Employee Growth
  3. Turnarounds
  4. Managing People
  5. Scientific Method
  6. Innovation
  7. Consulting
  8. Strategic Planning
  9. Post Mortems
  10. Relationships

Steve Tobak’s piece is nearly as cheeky as Letterman’s (eg. “Change Management – Ever try changing a company system or process that involves lots of people? If you have, then you’ve failed. And if you didn’t learn from it, then you’re still no good at it.”)
