What's Project: Risk Leader?
YOU: to the C-Suite and Beyond
Project: Risk Leader is a resource for executives and aspiring executives doing work in the areas of Governance, Risk, Compliance, Legal, Audit and IT/Security.
It’s for people who recognize that the same skills, attitudes and behaviors that got them where they are, will not guarantee entrance into the highest echelons of corporate leadership or the C-Suite.
It's for people who know (more than) enough about their risk-based work, but may not know as much about the "people" side of risk-based work.
Is that you?
If so, then you know you have to do more. You have to become more.
Here, for the first time is a resource dedicated to the human side of doing risk-based work.
Project: Risk Leader has the resources and tools that teach you how to elevate your influence within the organization. To be, at last, that person who can see a vision of a stronger, better-performing organization and know how to lead your organization to it. We’re talking about the leadership skills you need to guide an organization beyond the risks, and to be part of the executive team that focuses on overall principled performance.
Let’s take on this project together. This project called YOU: to the C-Suite and Beyond.
You Told Us...
What’s the number one challenge you face in your role?
We asked, you answered, and that’s why we created Project: Risk Leader.
Turns out your biggest problem has nothing to do with risk. It has to do with leadership and the human side of risk.
The #1 challenge you face in the workplace
- Getting senior management buy-in on the adoption and implementation of governance and internal control frameworks.
- Integrating risk management with business processes.
- Creating awareness and the business case on the value proposition of risk management.
- Building awareness of the potential value that risk management can add in improving organizational performance.
- Integrating governance, compliance and risk into the company and getting leaders to understand the importance.
- Getting buy in from the leadership within our organization.
- Lack of a strong GRC program centrally managed or coordinated across the enterprise.
- Getting business to be willing to pay for governance, compliance and risk beyond bare-minimum regulatory compliance requirements.
- Achieving senior leadership adoption of an integrated program.
- Bringing senior officers along for the ride, enabling performance and encouraging sound practice.
- Initiating a compliance and data governance program, appropriately communicating risk to executive management and capturing their enthusiastic support and sponsorship.
- Convincing CEOs that the Compliance Officer needs to be part of the C-Suite
This is just a sampling of results from a study performed in 2018 by OCEG. More than 1,300 respondents shared their views in an online survey.

Why a "Human Approach"
Making the business case; gaining the financial support; getting senior leadership buy-in; and creating a culture of governance, risk and compliance awareness doesn’t require more subject matter education.
Doing these things requires more personal development and more education about interpersonal skills.
Making strides in those areas requires knowing how to:
- forge relationships,
- build consensus,
- communicate and speak the language of the C-Suite, and
- persuasively make the case.
These are just a few of the topics you’ll find in Project: Risk Leader. These are human skills required for the next 20 years and beyond. You’ve found the source.
