MAGNET | Management Leadership Series: Risk Factor

Thursday, May 14, 2015

PRESENTATION OVERVIEW

“Leadership is about the courage to fail. Great leaders take risks, and seize the moment when the iron is hot.”


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN


Her presentation will show how risk can become an incredibly powerful tool in the leader’s tool belt by helping leaders:


• Explore how risk-taking is imperative to long- term growth, both as an organization and as a person. Without failure we don’t learn. Without experimentation, we don’t evolve.

• Understand the key differences between gambling and calculated risk-taking, and how to master the skills of risk.

• Build a culture that not only focuses on producing the work, but to also create and execute a steady flow of ideas to improve every aspect of the organization (and recognize a leader’s bias toward their own ideas).

• Find the balance between long-term value creation and short-term profitability.
