RTC: Risk Type Compass
Learn to identify how a person perceives and manages risk, and how they make decisions. Use this knowledge to make smart hires and assign roles so that each member of your organisation is performing to their absolute best.

How does risk affect decision-making?

Every time we make a decision, we negotiate the balance between risk and opportunity. But often, we’re navigating this maze on a subconscious level.

So it’s important to understand the psychological factors that might pull an employee in one direction or another when they’re making a decision.

Who is it for?

This powerful tool has a vast range of applications at individual, team and corporate level. You can use it in selection and development and team building, or as a way to understand risk culture and risk management.

Regardless of your industry sector, Risk Type Compass will allow you to discuss decision making, risk tolerance and who to place in risk-related roles. In trading or financial services, it can help you to identify blind spots and avoid compliance issues. In the investment domain, it can help match a portfolio's risk level with the personality of the client. In countless other situations it allows you to harness the psychology of risk to realise your organisation’s potential.

With Risk Type Compass, you can become certified in identifying an individual’s risk type and risk appetite. It’s a scientifically reliable and valid way to assess how individuals perceive and manage risk, and how they make decisions.
