Encourage your employees to fail
Play • 22 min

We must experience failure in order to grow. It is also inevitable. But maybe instead of trying to prevent it, we can actually accept it? Even encourage it? Perhaps failure is the thing that keeps us engaged and challenged in what we do? 

We talked to Benjamin Seror, CPO at Similarweb, who knows a thing or two about failures and successes. He joined Similarweb, a unicorn market analysis platform, from the early days as employee number 2 and built the product team from scratch while leveraging the lessons he learned from previous failures.

He shared with us why he loves the dreaded question in interviews, "what is your biggest failure?" and how the answer can help you identify if your candidate is more focused on skills (a specialist) or outcomes (a generalist).

Additionally, Benji shared with us his experience and insights on how to hire and develop talent, especially Gen Z who offer a new challenge to managers.
