The leadership team at Udacity takes the idea of instilling a growth mindset based on experimentation quite literally. Co-founder Sebastian Thrun, for example, hands a bottle of wine from his personal wine cellar to anyone who tries out a good idea that fails. And Udacity's “champagne fridge” opens not only to celebrate big launches but also to celebrate un-launches of products the team decides to sunset before they see the light of day.

    Loved the Spanx CEO anecdote of her father asking her as a child "What did you fail at today" as a way of encouraging the growth mindset.
    Not trying = failure is an awesome philosophy imo.
