Topic: Overcoming Aversion to Risk Management

Speaker: Sandra Gwynn

Overview: Journey back in time to the Trojan War to confront the "Cassandra Syndrome" (people's aversion to considering risk), and discuss how risk management can improve projects today. Using examples from people in risky professions who embrace and even profit from risk management (astronaut, cave diver), we will look at how to motivate people to identify and manage risk.

Topic: Noisy Risk!

Speaker: Tim Dalhouse

Overview: We have probably all heard of and used the “Communication Model” which states that every communication involves a sender, a receiver, messages, and noise. But do we understand the sources of noise, how to proactively identify them and attempt to minimize their negative occurrence or impact on our projects? Doesn’t that sound a lot like risk management? Well, it is! To be successful on projects, we must manage communication noise as a risk threat and put strategies in place to avoid, mitigate, transfer or accept the noise in our communications. Together, let’s explore the various sources of noise risk on a typical project and learn how to tame this beast.

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable

By Patrick Lencioni

Overview:

Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech's CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni's utterly gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight.

Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions which go to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. Just as with his other books, Lencioni has written a compelling fable with a powerful yet deceptively simple message for all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.

Make Your Bed: The Little Things that Can Change Your Life...And Maybe the World

By Admiral William H. McRaven

Overview:

On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the ten principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better.
