Learning from Failure

Polly Sumner,
and Liz Tinkham, Accenture

For Polly Sumner, recovering from failure is a lesson that you first learn as a child. She says that playing sports as an adolescent stresses the important fact that when you lose a game, you need to get back and play harder. “When you fail the first time and win the second time, the win is much sweeter,” says Sumner.
