Applying Risk Management to Your Organization: 2-day In-person Seminar
Jason Mefford, Certified Business Coach, Thought Leader, Professional Trainer & Speaker
Coming soon.. Please contact customer care for new schedule
This interactive seminar will help you understand the basics of Risk Management and how to implement it in your organization. Risk management is talked about a lot, but seems is often misunderstood. The reason is frequently that we are not speaking the same language within our organizations. Different names for the same terms, differing calculations for items with the same name, upside, downside, whichever side of risk, we often don’t know. In this course you will learn not only the basics of risk management, but how to speak the language of risk and teach it to others in your organization.
Through practical exercises you will learn how to identify and assess risks, calculate the applicable risk tolerances, walking away from the training with practical tips and tools you can use to apply risk management principles at your organization.
Key goals of the conference will include learning:
- The basics of risk management
- Understand the four ways to manage risks
