Taking Risks and Failing Forward

Presented by

Deb Calvert, People First Productivity Solutions

About this talk

Dealing with uncertainty and ambiguity. Walking on a tightrope. Taking a giant leap of faith. Some will, some won't. Some want to, but don't. The risks often seem too big and too dangerous... even when the rewards require a certain measure of risk-taking. Why is it that some people seem better equipped for taking risks? What do they have, think, and do that others lack? How do they recover when those risks don't pay off? How can YOU take more risks, even if they could result in failure? And why on earth would you do that? In this presentation, we'll break it down to examine: - The benefits of failure (Yes! You read that correctly... there ARE benefits!) - The qualities you can build to help you step outside your comfort zone - How to evaluate risk and create your own safety nets - The risks of inaction and succumbing to fear Leaders step out in front. Sometimes they take risks that others won't. But they don't do it haphazardly or irresponsibly. They do it with a spirit of confidence, interest in learning, and yearning for continuous improvement. And you can, too!
