Have you ever regretted not standing up for something you felt strongly about? Or not speaking up when you knew your words would make a difference? Have you ever worried about embarrassing yourself by acting on an idea others might reject? All of these questions describe risk-taking opportunities.
Taking a risk means stepping into a situation where the consequences of your decisions and actions are uncertain and there is some possibility of loss or adversity. It requires a willingness to operate outside of your comfort zone and experiment with new ways of doing things. Many of us are reluctant to pursue opportunities that could result in significant company growth because of the risks involved.
In this class, you will learn how to take risks with confidence by preparing yourself to take on an opportunity, assessing its consequences, and managing the results. This 3-hour instructor-led online seminar offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
