Fusion Academy is pleased to host speaker Kati Strong with College Living Experience (CLE) at our next Coffee & Connections for ALL community members.
Topic: Reframing Failure.
Everyone experiences failure in their lives, and one’s response to failure sets the tone for its short and long-term impact. It is crucial for students to have opportunities to experience and problem-solve through failure during their early years to better prepare for future struggles. As students transition into young adulthood, increased expectations for self-advocacy and initiation can lead to often feeling overwhelmed with the decision-making process. By experiencing natural consequences of their decisions in a safe, supportive environment and developing healthy responses and strategies for managing when failure happens, students build the skills and resilience necessary for independence in adulthood.
