The world’s leading expert on the science of psychological safety draws on a lifetime’s research to show how to get failure right.

Amy Edmondson has been named the most influential management thinker in the world. In her latest work, she introduces the three archetypes of failure – simple, complex and intelligent – and explains how to harness the revolutionary potential of the good failures - and eliminate the bad.

Drawing on illuminating case-studies, from the history of open-heart surgery to the Columbia Space Shuttle disaster, Edmondson offers techniques for overcoming confirmation bias and practicing persistence, reflection and accountability.

Join Amy Edmondson at the RSA for leading-edge insights into the science and solutions that can help us promote greater innovation, efficiency and safety in our teams - both at work and in life.


Speakers: Amy Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management, Harvard Business School and author of Right Kind of Wrong: Why Learning to Fail Can Teach Us to Thrive.
