Are you on top of the latest developments in enterprise risk management?

Why do so many enterprise risk management leaders get caught in an echo chamber, where ideas reverberate and get recycled? It’s because in most organizations, the risk management implementation task is assigned to a single person or to a small team. 

To create breakthroughs in your risk management journey
, you need to access fresh ideas and emerging practices. If you don’t seek contact with leading risk managers and thinkers outside of your day-to-day activities, you run the risk of quickly getting stuck and stale.

Why is it difficult to escape from your echo chamber? 

Perhaps you’ve thought about doing more networking outside of your organization and sector but have run into these common roadblocks:

  • You are unsure of where to look for resources (information, people, networking and training events). You return to your established sources of information and miss out on good ideas that are developed outside of your echo chamber.
  • You don’t know your risk management peers from outside of your organization or sector. It’s too hard to find out who else is doing risk management, so you continue to network inside your echo chamber.
  • You don’t have the time to seek out resources or research the latest developments and trends. It’s faster and easier to go to your old standby’s than it is to find out what is going on in the wider universe of management and business. You could be missing the boat on important trends and not even know it.
  • You don’t have the logistical support or the inclination to organize and facilitate regular meetings with your peers. When you do manage to establish new relationships and networks, they tend to fizzle out quickly because you lack the administrative horsepower to maintain them.
  • You are afraid to admit that you’re stuck or perhaps have some other fear that only you know about. Feelings of vulnerability stop you from asking for the feedback and help you need.

Let us do the legwork so you can experience all the benefits!

Break out of your echo chamber by joining the 'Inner Circle' for Risk Management Leaders. We take care of the logistics so you can:

  • Participate with your peers from other organizations in monthly small-group teleconferences to tackle common challenges and share implementation experiences. To maximize your benefits, the 'Inner Circle' is restricted to only 8 participants.

How the 'Inner Circle' for Enterprise Risk Management Leaders service works:

  • Participate with your 'Inner Circle' group in mastermind-style networking and information exchange sessions facilitated by a risk management expert.
  • Meet with your group for 90-minute teleconference sessions, once a month, for three months with an opportunity to extend.
  • Each session focuses on a single risk management implementation issue. Topics are selected based on input from all members of the group about their most pressing risk management information and implementation needs. A different issue is selected each month. The topic is announced 2 to 3 weeks in advance of the session to ensure you have time to prepare the thoughts, experiences and ideas you would like to share with the group.
  • Depending on the group’s level of experience with the topic, Risk Wise will, from time to time, invite guest speakers with specialized expertise to join or lead a session.
  • A key feature of the ‘Inner Circle’ is that it is a place to get support from your peers. Therefore at the conclusion of each session, you will commit to an action to advance your organization’s enterprise risk management program. Your 'Inner Circle' facilitator and your fellow 'Inner Circle' group members will support you along every step of your risk management implementation journey.
