How to Encourage Taking Smart Risks

Taking risks is necessary for businesses and individuals to move forward, succeed, and achieve goals. True, there is a possibility of failure and one should study, analyze, and be aware of the consequences of the risks involved. Here are some tips on how to inspire your team to takes wise risks.

  • Do you research before making a decision. Consider the potential upside and downside of any business decision.
  • Make sure you create an environment that is safe for risk-taking. Team members usually don’t take unnecessary risks if they know they’ll be punished, insulted, or hurt after taking risks or failing in an endeavor that was risky. No employee wants to face the blame for a decision gone bad.
  • Start with small risks. Increase the level of risk with each success after acquiring more capital.
  • Reward those who take risks. This will encourage them to be courageous and level up in making decisions.
  • Establish a “creative” time where your team can freely brainstorm and present new ideas.
  • Don’t scold employees for presenting a new idea that doesn’t fit into the existing business model. If you tell an employee their first idea is bad, you might never get a second idea form them.

Risk is an interesting thing. Some people seem to run into danger. They appear to be attracted to it. Be it an entrepreneur who starts a new business or a thrill seeker that loves the adrenaline rush of jumping out of an airplane.

On the other hand, there is a certain type of person who spends their days trying to minimize risk in every way. Sadly these are often employee who latch onto a full-time job with benefits for an illusion of safety and security.

From personal life experience, I’d say that the corporate world is filled with mid-level managers and ground-floor employees that fit this construct of risk averse people. I hope these quotes and slogans provide you with the confidence needed to take a smart risk whether you’re starting a new business or pitching an idea at a meeting.
