Where people are making decisions they are taking risks. Measuring a person’s propensity and comfort with risk is crucial in today’s world of work. Whether you are an entrepreneur, in a leadership position, or a financial advisor a great deal of your success will depend on your risk behaviour and capacity to manage it.

The Risk-Type Compass™ explores an individual’s predisposition to risk through assessing two factors, namely:

  • Risk Type: This aspect is deeply rooted in your personality traits and will influence how much risk you are willing to take, how much uncertainty you can cope with and how you react when things go wrong.
  • Risk Attitude: This aspect is focused on the effects of life experience and your personal circumstances and how these also contribute to your risk taking behaviour.

In the Risk-Type Compass™ training we will be exploring the importance of understanding ‘risk’ and why we would want to measure it. Furthermore we will be discussing the development, statistics and practical application of the assessment tool.
