If you are a senior risk professional wishing to take the extra steps to increase your impact and elevate your status as a trusted adviser, you need to be in the ONLINE room with other like-minded professionals.
Just like the medical profession, the risk profession requires structure and fundamental skills to be a GP. Some branches require specialisation as there is so much to learn and become experienced in. Then there are other skills that differentiate a great medico from one that is tolerated by their patients. They are able to go deeper with their thinking (diagnosis), understand how culture plays a part in how people relate to medicos and act, or not, on their advice. And have little tricks up their sleeves to create change in people’s lives. All backed up with the ability to provide the facts (quantification). And of course the really great medicos are master influencers. Same as the best risk professionals.
Which of the skills in the table below do you think you have mastered and which do you think you should be working on? Better still, go ask some of your stakeholders how they rate your skills in these core areas.
