MM&I Header

August 29, 2011 - Do you take calculated risks or impulsive risks? What is taking a risk to you? What would be considered a risk by others but to you it is not a risk at all? What do you see as risky, but to someone else you know, it is not? By understanding your perception of risk and how it relates to the way others think, you can better determine how to proceed with endeavors requiring the assistance of others.  If you don't have a good idea of how those around you perceive risk, perhaps it is time to engage in some enlightening and stimulating conversation on the subject.

Take an MM&I Moment to write down the biggest risks you have taken to date, including those that were worthwhile as well as those that did not result in what was expected. For those that turned out well, write the reward. For those that turned out differently, write the lesson. Now write down a particular risk you would like to consider and who you may need to help you realize a successful outcome. Talk to these people about their own risk-taking experiences and comfort levels. Begin to gauge the ones best to be a part of the solution and those who may hinder progress due to their own discomfort with the risk. For those who are bigger risk takers than you, leverage this in what they can do to move certain aspects further. For those less likely to take risks, give them a role in which they can be comfortable. By taking into consideration everyone's point of view, you are being more calculated and purposeful and before you know it, you have gotten to the other side what didn't turn out to be as risky as you once thought.
