Failure Workshop With Rachel Simmons


Fail Well.

As a student at Swarthmore, failure often seems a stigmatized subject - one that we collectively avoid in the pursuit of perfection. Given the plethora of projects Swarthmore students undertake, however, it is undoubtedly a more common part of every students life than many care to admit. We all fail, so why not try to do it well? 

How can you take risks if you're afraid of failing? 

How can you set goals that feel attainable?

If these questions resonate with you, then this Failure Workshop is the perfect opportunity for you to better understand the root of these anxieties. Leadership Development Specialist Rachel Simmons can help you practice self compassion, interpret feedback in novel ways, and ultimately fail better. This workshop will teach lasting skills that will remain pertinent beyond Swarthmore.
