TED Radio Hour explores what happens when we make mistakes

Making-MistakesIt happens to the best of us: as hard as we try to be perfect, on occasion, we mess up. Today’s TED Radio Hour explores how we deal with mistakes and the simple fact that, sometimes, we are wrong. It asks: what does it take to face mistakes head-on and use them as a learning experience?

In this episode — the fourth in season two — Brian Goldman shares what happens when it’s a doctor who makes the mistake, Brené Brown reveals what we can hear when we listen to shame, Stefon Harris looks to jazz where there are no mistakes and Margaret Heffernan illuminates why conflict is simply a part of progress.
