Risk and Uncertainty

The Rewards of Taking Risks (RU005)

Risk. What does that word mean to you? Heroic adventures, filled with dazzling feats of daring, and spectacular rewards? Or maybe hazards, danger, and potential catastrophe? Unless you’re an action-movie hero, it’s probably far less dramatic than that. Every day, you face risks in various forms, and most days you probably navigate them with little drama. So, when it comes to making decisions about our lives, why does taking risks still feel so, well… risky?

The thing is, when you build risk-taking into your life, you stand to gain regardless of outcome. Risk-taking is a reward in itself. It not only opens the door to awesome new experiences and opportunities, but also builds your self-confidence, creativity, and resilience along the way.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Recognize the rewards of positive risk-taking
• Compare differing attitudes to risk-taking and their benefits
• Justify taking risks for self-development and fulfillment

Why take this course?
