About the Book

Failure is an inevitable part of life and work. All leaders, no matter how capable, will face failure and setbacks in their careers. How a leader responds to those challenges, and more importantly, how he or she learns and grows from the experiences, will define his or her long term potential as a leader.

In this book the author shares some of the failures he endured during his career and the most important learnings he derived from those experiences. The Brilliance in Failure is a unique look into the career of a successful executive and the many mistakes that he made on his leadership journey. Those mistakes and failures created huge opportunities for personal growth and turned out to be essential to his success over time.

The author’s central message is simply that failure is not something to be feared, but rather to be embraced as a learning opportunity that can shape your leadership style and expand your personal impact on an organization.
