What People are Saying

Risk Leader’s time is now. Never has the human side of risk been more important. And we’re making an impact.

I’ve been to countless seminars, have achieved several certifications, but only Project: Risk Leader has helped me understand myself and develop my people skills. Those skills are just as important as my GRC knowledge.

This was an awakening for me. I was speaking the wrong language. I was talking about risk and everyone else was talking about growth. Now I know how to connect the two. What a difference!

I never thought of my role as being a sales role. Project Risk Leader helped me see that, then they gave me the tools to build and sell the business case for risk.

Many thanks!
A must for any risk practioner.

We Help You With the Human Side of Risk

Icon of awareness

You are a subject matter expert in your field. But are you a subject matter expert in yourself? Emotional intelligence, behavioral tendencies, attitudes, motivations all play a role in your success. Know thyself!

Icon of communication

You have daily conversations, you have tough conversations. Are you an expert at handling good, neutral and bad news? Communications is words, but it is also tone, delivery and timing. Are you using the language of a manager or of a leader?

Icon of persuasion

Don’t think you’re in sales? Think again! Your role demands the disciplines of persuasion. It’s not that your audience of C-Suite executives won’t buy, maybe it’s because you’re not selling. Learn how to make the case and get what you want.

Icon of relationships

Business is about relationships, first and foremost. People want to work with people they like. Who do we like? People we can trust. Make building a culture of trusting relationship inside and outside of your department a non-negotiable.
