Make a Move with Your Risk Management

The concept of risk management—what it is and consists of—is something that is often misunderstood or misinterpreted. A big challenge many companies face is evolving the management of their risk and dealing with it properly as it changes. While risk itself is a recurring instance for most companies, the problem is not just dealing with different risks, but having a universal definition of what they are and also specifically having a risk identification plan.

It’s more than mantra and if I was going to go full-on philosophy guy, I would write about how it can apply to all aspects of your life and be a great marker for moving forward: be it with co-workers, bosses, children, significant others, friends, enemies—anything and everything can be plopped under its large umbrella.

First thing, fight off the knee-jerk urge to ignore the call and embrace it. Unlike the characters in the bad movie, you have the power to control your own destiny.
