How to Bounce Back from Professional Failure
Oil and gas experts offer tips on how to bounce back from a professional set-back.

Stephanie Rogers, managing director for talent and organization at Accenture Resources, said failures can be celebrated if the time is taken to understand and channel them in terms of ‘what’s next.’

“Being able to take a failure of any nature and learn what you might do different and why is courageous and requires patience,” Rogers said.

“The skills to manage through failure can be very valuable in an ever-changing world and can help our teams lead through ongoing complexity and vagueness. Be careful before you segment ‘failure’ in the trash bin,” Rogers added.

Offering his advice for oil and gas professionals looking to bounce back from a professional set-back, Aaron Wilson, recruitment manager at EM&I (Resources) Ltd, said “continue to develop, promote and network.”
