CAnadian Worker Coop Federation Webinar:  Learning from Failure Leads to Success

Forwarding along a webinar that might be of interest, taking place March 29th, from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm. It will be hosted by Russ Christianson and focus on learning from co-operative enterprise failure.

 “Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.” Truman Capote

Co-operatives have twice the success rate of conventional businesses: 40 percent versus 20 percent.  Nonetheless, that still means that three out of five co-ops fail.  During this webinar, we will discuss the reasons for co-operative enterprise failure and what can we learn from these hard lessons.  We will also share ideas about the specific things we can do to improve our own co-ops’ chances of success and how to deal with the emotions and fallout of failure.
