Above the Waterline: Mistakes You Should Dare to MakeCOURSE ID: DARING
DESCRIPTION

On a boat, there are two kinds of mistakes: above-the-waterline mistakes and below-the-water-line mistakes. You learn from the former; the latter sink the boat. Confusing the two can spell disaster; understanding the difference can mean innovation and growth — even in storm-tossed seas of change. This course offers a liberating approach to risk and reward that can help individuals and organizations deal with their toughest challenges.

Frank Ryan, CPA and Greg Conderacci are two of BLI’s most popular instructors. Both have survived many mistakes to lead successful careers in finance and marketing. Frank, a Marine combat veteran and former Congressional candidate, walked coast-to-coast to raise money for his favorite charity. Greg, an instructor at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, is also an ultra-long-distance bicycle racer. This course is a follow-on to their team-taught “Extraordinary Endurance: Leadership Lessons from the Long Road.”
