Flop Program

Tired of the "hustleandgrind" culture that ignores the inevitable stumbles on the road to success? Ditch the shame spiral and get real with Flop!, a program that celebrates failure as a powerful learning tool. 

Here's the deal: We all flop sometimes, whether it's bombing a presentation, flunking a test, or realizing your passion project was, well, not-so-passionate. But instead of hiding under our blankets (guilty!), Flop! flips the script. 

Think TED Talks, but for mistakes. Amazing speakers from diverse backgrounds share their epic fails and the valuable lessons they learned along the way. In just 20 minutes, you'll get: 

  • Honest stories of failure: Get the real dirt on how even the coolest people messed up royally. 

  • Turning flops into gold: Learn how to transform your face-plants into fuel for future wins. 

  • Creative problem-solving skills: Master the art of mitigating risk and bouncing back from setbacks like a boss. 

Don't take our word for it: 

  • Nicole, an environmental science student at UA, said, "Working for the planet means failure is inevitable, but Flop! helped us see it as a tool to build resilience." 

  • Associate Professor Cory Quailes, Retailing and Consumer Sciences: "Flop! jumpstarted my class, got everyone thinking out of the box, and set the tone for creativity all semester." 

Ready to bring the Flop! magic to your group? It's easier than ordering pizza (and probably less messy). Just head over to the Flop! website and fill out a quick form. Boom, instant wisdom bombs delivered straight to your group meeting. 

So ditch the shame, embrace the fail, and get ready to Flop! your way to success. Trust us, your future self will thank you. 

P.S. Flop! isn't just for student groups – bring the learning power to your club, sports team, class, or even your residence hall floor. Failure is universal, and the lessons learned are worth sharing.
