6 super successful people who were fired from their “dream job”

6 super successful people who were fired from their “dream job” | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
From Anna Wintour to Mark Cuban, here are a handful of well-known visionaries who got their real start only after being fired.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Interesting article about failure leading to success. I've been a deep reader of ideas around "failing forward" over the years. One of my core interview subject areas I recommend that clients probe is failure and the learning that comes from it. How people demonstrate resilience around failure. My own experience is that I got fired from my first job out of  college.

 

How has failure lit a fire under you and contributed to your success?

'Work-related mental health conditions are becoming more and more prevalent'...
Barry Deutsch's insight:

I've researched the idea of mental toughness extensively and teach it as my primary tool for success in coaching High School Girls Basketball. What is mental toughess (or what's now referred to as "Grit")?

 

It's character traits that enable success - like a positive attitude, a winner's mentality, proactivity, intiaitive, self-motivation, resilience, ability to overcome adversity, ability to accept constructive criticism/feedback and strive to continually improve (as Covey called it - sharpening the sword).

 

I recommend my clients dig into these character issues in every interview at every level. Here's an article on resilience I thought was interesting, especially this quote:

 

"40% of global respondents reported low levels of personal resilience and were at risk of ‘occupational burnout"

 

How do you build mental toughness/grit among your teams, especially since it's one of the core elements of high-performing teams.
