Reconfiguring success, and how failure isn't necessarily a bad thing in business

Humans are facing the fastest rate of change and some of the biggest challenges our species has ever encountered. Never before have transformative skillsets, agile thinking and resilience been needed so much. And, not just resilience to cope with the big events, but to better cope with everyday challenges and failures. Jennifer Young explores how we can become comfortable with change and discomfort, learn how to bounce through failure and learn how to transform ourselves, our businesses and our world.

Opinion

There may be good reason to be concerned about our young entrepreneurs. Millennials and Generation Z have been labelled generation burn-out, generation snowflake and described as narcissistic, entitled, tech-dependent and fragile. They’re also oversaturated with headlines about the raft of issues like climate change they have to tackle, plus concerns about the impact of technology and social media on their mental health. Jennifer Young explores possible reasons why the younger generation is so anxious, as well as what young founders can do to avoid burn-out.
