    As we approach the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, there is no better lesson in leadership when it comes to learning from failure than the 1961 fiasco known as the Bay of Pigs.It was clearly Kennedy’s most significant and embarrassing public failure in his three years as president.
