Intelligent Risk-Taking: From Vision to Action, a 1- to 2-Day Program

The environment is changing rapidly in many industries right now. To keep up with these changes, organizations are forced to make high-risk decisions. Making these decisions means that organizations must act under conditions where key variables and potential outcomes are unknown. There is the potential for negative outcomes, but the risk is necessary for superior outcomes. Safe, mediocre outcomes are not enough to succeed on the highest level.

Barnes & Conti Associates created Intelligent Risk-Taking™ to provide participants with practical tools and processes to determine their own risk-taking style and compare it to others. Participants will develop ideas for improving their own and their team’s confidence in risk taking and get ideas for influencing others to support their risk-taking efforts.

Who should attend?

This program is intended for individuals and teams whose work involves risk and innovation.
