Great Call: How and Why to take more Risk in this New Age of Uncertainty
As the world around us becomes increasingly uncertain and unpredictable, the ability to feel comfortable with such uncertainty and increase profits becomes more and more of a key skill. This session can help participants develop their capability as a leader by:
- Giving a new appreciation of the reality, implications and challenges posed by uncertainty when making decisions and allocating resources;
- Giving a new toolset to overcome these challenges in volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous circumstances;
- Creating a new mindset and a way of breaking out of old risk-averse habits and methodologies;
- Cascading such a mindset down through an organisation so that employees are more able to feel comfortable with risk so that they can better embrace change, innovate and seize opportunity.
