Advertising Leadership

According to leadership mentor John Maxwell and Ford Motor Company founder Henry Ford, "failure is an opportunity to begin again more intelligently." When Thomas Watson founded IBM, one of his employees made a mistake that cost the fledgling firm $600,000. Board members pressed for a dismissal. Thomas Watson retained the employee saying, "why would I want to fire the man and let all of that experience go to a competitor? I just paid $600,000 to train him."

Advertising is a learning experience.
