Leadership Essentials: Evaluating Risk

Risk-taking is necessary if organisations are to improve, develop and compete effectively, yet organisations that hide or punish failure will revert to a risk-averse culture that inhibits risk-taking by employees. There is a need to take risks, but it is important that they are managed effectively. If you and your team are going to embrace risk, you need to demonstrate that risk-taking is an acceptable part of your organisation’s culture.

‘Leadership Essentials: Evaluating Risk’ provides an overview of why evaluating risk is essential for leadership capability and includes ‘Top Tips’ on how evaluating risk can help you become a better leader.

The Essentials leaflet is supported by three Spotlights that look at aspects of evaluating risk in more detail to help you improve your leadership skills:

  • Understanding Risk
  • Managing Risk
  • Measuring risk
