Avante Advertising Explain Why Learning From Mistakes Can Push Your Business to the Next Level
on January 29, 2019
Nobody likes making mistakes, but the simple fact is that it is an unavoidable part of daily life. The businesses that are really thriving understand that learning from your mistakes is the best way to move forward, and so they use their mistakes as ways in which to provide a better service in the future. Direct marketing specialists Avante Advertising are a highly sought-after company who use tried and tested techniques in order to generate new business for their clients, but as Managing Director Emilio Mayagoitia says, even a company at the top of their game can make mistakes from time to time.
He says, ‘Mistakes are a part of life and while none of us like making them, sometimes even with the best planning and knowledge things can still go wrong. I have always considered mistakes to be a vital part of the learning process and Avante Advertising wouldn’t be where it is today if I hadn’t learned from every little mistake that has been made along the way. This way, at least we never make the same mistake twice. Reflecting on bad decisions and accidental problems means you are constantly analysing your own progress, ensuring that each mistake makes you a better, more secure company. The secret is to always ensure that lessons are learnt from each mistake.’
Allowing your staff to make mistakes is a difficult thing to do, but it’s vital that they feel free to make the odd mistake. Emilio Mayagoitia says, ‘Be really careful not to create a culture of blame in your office. If your staff feel too scared to make a mistake then they simply won’t be bold in their work and you will never thrive.’
According to Forbes, Emilio Mayagoitia is absolutely right. ‘Good employees make a lot of mistakes, and truly great employees are those (that) have mastered the art of apologizing for those mistakes’. Encouraging your employees to be bold and brave is by far the best way to get the most out of them, so giving them the freedom to take measured risks is a very good move indeed.
Avante Advertising are leading the field in the world of direct marketing because they understand exactly how to get the most from their employees. A results-driven company, they specialise in boosting their clients’ customer base and sending profits soaring – so it’s no wonder that they are in such high demand.
