How can our experiences of failure become opportunities for success?
Join us for the next session in the Career Advantage Series, where AUT Business School’s Dr Smita Singh will discuss her "failure research” and its impact on our professional and personal growth.
Dr. Smita Singh (Senior Lecturer with the Department of International Business, Strategy and Entrepreneurship) says:
“Failure is an inevitable aspect of our lives, but it does not have to be something we are ashamed of, and it need not be a secret. In this presentation, I will talk about why looking into and talking openly about our failures is essential.
Against the backdrop of failure research, backed by insights and stories of entrepreneurs with failed businesses, I invite you to take the first step towards looking into your failures with fun and curiosity and developing a healthier relationship with them.”

My research is to illuminate the hidden stories, how organizations, work and people's wellbeing are interconnected, focusing on the possibilities of growth and development that lie within the silent experiences of loss, 'taken-for-granted' cultural taboos, and stigmatized conditions. My doctoral research highlighted shame and judgement associated with entrepreneurial failure and catalysed my interest in including vulnerable populations' voices and bringing forward conversations on matters often perceived as too unsettling, morbid, or dark and therefore avoided.
