The Reset Economy, a term coined by GE’s CEO, Jeff Immelt, refers to the Great Recession as more than a simple business cycle correction, but a permanent, fundamental change to how markets will operate and be influenced going forward.
Innovation is the critical differentiator of successful companies and professionals where risktaking will increasingly become the überskill in a reinvented world. Although it plays well as a standalone skill for career advancement, when combined with personal initiative, discipline, and problem-solving capabilities and skills such as effective communication, negotiations, and relationship management, risktaking becomes a portable powerhouse of transferrable skill sets. You can take them anywhere.
Whether you’re positioning yourself for a promotion, moving to a new role within your existing organization or transitioning to another company you’ll want to include personal and professional risktaking in your portfolio of skills.
Collaborative Risktaking™ includes a fast-track process for high-profile decision-making that has the power to grow your influence, increase your visibility-on-demand, and provide you with a safety net for the reinvented world.
