Most people consider “risk” to be a hazard to get around, a danger to avoid, a problem that stops them from getting ahead. But this “all-or-nothing” mentality can result in strategic blind spots: a perception of reality that is narrow and incomplete.
Strategic Risk Intelligence is the ability to effectively distinguish vulnerabilities and untapped opportunities in developing an organization’s goals, and translate these insights into superior judgment and practical action.
Increasing your understanding of strategic risk allows you to evaluate blind spots and recognize vulnerabilities from a big-picture context. Instead of overestimating minor threats and underestimating growth opportunities, Risk Intelligent leaders respond with confidence and clarity.
