Accept Failure # 2 – Denzel Washington

Had a great first day at FDIC 2018.  It was good to see so many friends and colleagues who came in early for the pre-conference workshops.  I want to thank the folks who stopped by my “7 C’s of Fire Officer Trust Class” #7Cz.  Your participation was great and I appreciate your candor, in discussing Fire Officer development.

We talked about accepting and using failure.  Due to time constraints, I did not share this clip with you.  It is the U-Penn Commencement speech that was delivered by the actor Denzel Washington.  His thoughts on failure bolster our discussion.
