There are very few people who feel comfortable making mistakes at work or in their life. They fear that they will lose the respect of their managers and peers, and that they will tarnish their reputations. Yet mistakes are often the best teachers.
People wont learn something new if they only do things they know well. Create a mistake-making culture. Encourage your people to take risks. Help them accept their gaffes and share what they have learned from them.
Ofcourse, there are times when blunders are too costly. But for those less mission-critical times, ask your people to approach problems not as experts but as learners.
