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.

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:

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.
