    How much do you love or loathe risk? How much is too much? How much do you need to adapt to external forces and stay relevant?

    Individual risk tolerance is an invisible force that affects everything around it: interpersonal relationships, inter-department cooperation, and leadership's effectiveness.

    Ability to diagnose and remedy divergent beliefs about the 'goodness' or 'badness' of risk allows HR professionals to better advise organizational leaders, coach managers and resolve conflict.

    Benefits of Attending:

    • Learn an analytical framework to evaluate personal and organization risk tolerance.
    • Assess impact of risk tolerance on organizational goals and likely success in delivering on the organization's mission, vision and values.
    • Facilitate dynamic and engaging risk management conversations thereby increasing opportunities to build consensus and improve collaboration
    • Improve negotiation and conflict resolution comfort and competencies
