Changing the Know-it-all Mindset with Amber Pedersen ROO at MedMan

Episode Summary:

Failures and mistakes are part of life. Winston Churchill said, “Success is stumbling from failure to failure without no loss of enthusiasm”.

It is from our mistakes that we learn flexibility, humility, and embracing positivity. When we fail, we learn. We grow and increase our understanding and perspective in life, career, and relationships. Many of our lifelong lessons come from failures and mistakes, painful as they may be.

In this episode, we continue our interview with Amber Pedersen. In part 1, Amber talked about self-policing and its impact on organizations.

In today’s episodes, we focus on failures and missteps, lessons Amber has learned, and what steps she is taking to make or do things better. She also shares funny personal experiences, insights from mistakes, and learning to understand the different sides to make better decisions.

Get your notebook ready as this podcast is full of insights. Please tune in!
