Decision Making and Risk Type

Every decision we make involves managing the balance between risk and opportunity. Very often employees navigate this complex maze at a subconscious level. It’s important to understand and measure the potential biases or tendencies to be pulled in one direction or the other when making decisions, in order to manage it effectively. Become certified in this scientifically valid and reliable online tool that helps assess differences in the way individuals make decisions and how they perceive, react to and manage risk.

The tool has a wide range of possible applications at individual, team, and corporate levels, such as selection and development, team building, understanding risk culture, and risk management.

The Risk Type Compass (RTC) facilitates discussion about decision making, risk tolerance, the suitability of Risk Types for risk-related roles. In sectors such as trading and financial services, it can help identify potential blind spots and ensure compliance obligations are met.
