Dan’s can-fail at­ti­tude in­spires school com­mu­ni­ties to suc­ceed

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business -

KEY­NOTE speaker and ed­u­ca­tion con­sul­tant Dan Haesler has told Year 12 stu­dents at Iona Pre­sen­ta­tion Col­lege they need to learn to fail bet­ter.

Speak­ing to the stu­dents this month, Mr Haesler said peo­ple must learn from the feed­back they re­ceive.

“You’ve got to learn to fail bet­ter,” he said. “Think about how you can chal­lenge your think­ing.

“Suc­cess is lots of set­backs, change of plans, putting things off and some­times set­ting whole new goals.”

Mr Haesler also urged stu­dents to look af­ter their re­la­tion­ships with friends as well as fam­ily.

“What kind of friend are you?” he asked. “Are you look­ing af­ter your re­la­tion­ships?”

Mr Haesler spoke to stu­dents and the wider Iona com­mu­nity on the re­la­tion­ships be­tween en­gage­ment, well­be­ing, achieve­ment and lead­er­ship at the col­lege last week.

He will share the stage with His Ho­li­ness the Dalai Lama later this year when he tours Australia.
