How much do you love or loathe risk? How much is too much? How much do you need to adapt to external forces to stay relevant?

Individual risk tolerance is an invisible force that affects everything around it: interpersonal relationships, inter-department cooperation and leadership’s effectiveness.

Ability to diagnose and remedy divergent beliefs about the ‘goodness’ or ‘badness’ of risk allows HR professionals to better advise organizational leaders, coach managers and resolve conflict.
