Episode Description

The buzz: Red badge! What is “courage” in our innovation culture? Courage is one of the most essential factors in the innovation process. It enables you to be open for new ideas and possibilities, not afraid to fall on your face or get lost in your own isolation. Failing can wake you up to new ways and paths to successful innovation. But without it, you probably wouldn’t have recognized that. As André Gide said, “You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose the sight of the shore.” The experts speak. Michel Serie: “There is nothing more constant than change” (Heraclitus). Oezge Oelmez: “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new” (Albert Einstein). Martin Daum: “So often you find that the students you're trying to inspire are the ones that end up inspiring you” (Unkown). Inessa Laukart: “It´s fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure” (Bill Gates). Join us for Courage, Failure, and the Innovation Culture.
