The lessons we learn and remember tend to be based on flawed decisions. Think of situations where bad decisions led to bad results: We went to the wrong school, dated or married the wrong person, invested in the wrong stock. You get the idea.
In business, we need to teach simple lessons and impress on others the consequences of bad decisions before they happen. Complex lessons are neither remembered nor broadly applied in life or in business. Consequences must be known and understood. This applied knowledge will help your team avoid catastrophes in life and in business.
