hand-crushing-paper-word-risk-DOUG SUNDHEIMWhen cultures support smart risk taking teams innovate, people feel engaged, there’s excitement for the future. When cultures don’t support smart risk taking all these things stagnate. Progress becomes painful, and quite often impossible.

Our work with hundreds of client organizations over the past fifteen years has shown that successful smart-risk-taking cultures have four hallmarks:

  1. A compelling purpose and direction
  2. A highly functional leadership team
  3. The ability to quickly adapt to a changing environment
  4. Clear signals that it’s OK to risk and fail if you do it intelligently
