The Neuroscience of Risk: Using the Brain for Stronger ERM

Risk is everyone’s business. But as it turns out, we don’t all see it the same way. Have you ever been surprised, frustrated, or disappointed by how your staff, board members or other stakeholders deal with risk? Perhaps they are not applying enough rigor to evaluating potential business strategies, or obsess over small risks while simultaneously burying their head in the sand when it comes to looming threats. So is getting everyone on the same page a futile endeavour? How can your organization ensure it has an effective risk management approach that everyone can get behind? As it turns out, the brain holds a crucial part of the answer. Discoveries in neuroscience illuminate and help to explain some of the common pitfalls of risk management, including the blindspots and misperceptions individuals have around risk. Join us to learn how you can apply brain science to improve your own decisions and to design organizational processes that support your people to better handle risk.

Getting Serious about Risk Culture: Clarifying the Concept and Improving Performance

Risk culture has emerged as a hot topic in corporate governance and risk management circles. Negative, weak or unhealthy risk cultures are implicated in a range of disasters within and across organizations. Directors, executives and senior risk practitioners are called upon to transform existing risk cultures into positive, strong and healthy alternatives. Despite widespread agreement on the general problem and solution, however, risk culture and its link with organizational performance are shrouded in confusion. What exactly is risk culture? Is it different from organizational culture and safety culture? What is its effect on objectives? How can we change risk culture? It is time for us to get serious about risk culture. Join us for this discussion that will examine the state of the art for risk culture in organizational contexts. Our speaker, Chris Eaton, will share scholarly insights and practical approaches toward assessing and influencing risk culture that link well with organizational performance. Although risk culture can be somewhat unique within and across organizations, a few elements have been found to apply broadly. Chris will describe scientifically and practically grounded strategies that you will be able to implement in your organization. As such, this webinar is a must for senior risk practitioners, executives and directors who are accountable for assessing and influencing risk culture in the organizations they serve.

Top 10 Questions to Proactively Manage Reputational Risk: Moving Directors from Defense to Offense

When reputational incidents occur, it is often too late for boards and management to do anything other than respond to the crisis. They are forced to play defense. Many crises are found to be, in part, failures in corporate governance. Boards of directors need to shift their thinking so that reputational risk is prioritized as part of an ongoing dialogue at the board table and as a key element in strategy execution. In reputation risk, as in many things, the best defensive strategy is to have a strong offense. Join us as Elliot Schreiber, Ph.D.—recognized expert in organizational alignment, strategy execution and risk management—explores ways to foster culture throughout the organization for better reputation management. Elliot will provide insights on how boards can generate discussions with their management teams in order to proactively manage strategic risk, and will discuss what questions they should be asking in order to make proper decisions—even when things are going well. Elliot will share the top ten critical questions you and your board should be asking management in order to encourage discussion, receive information, and monitor trends in the company’s reputation environment to help make better decisions that align with your organization’s strategies.

When Trust is Breached: Disaster Recovery Plans for Serious Ethical Issues

A breach of trust by your company, its employees, or even its suppliers can have serious repercussions for a company’s reputation and its shareholders. The emissions testing scandal at Volkswagen is demonstrating the high cost when a company's ethics are questioned. These include: anger from consumers, denunciation in the media, and serious drops in share prices. Social media has increased the speed that alleged misconduct by employees can harm the company’s reputation. This year, Forbes Magazine reported that reputation risk is a top concern for CEOs. Despite this, few companies spend the necessary time planning and preparing for a company’s response to a serious loss of trust in the corporation through ethics or compliance breaches. Is your organization ready for such an event? Trailblazing ethics and compliance professional Kathleen Edmond, Partner, Robins Kaplan LLP, will share her insights into why it’s more important than ever that compliance professionals actively participate in conversations about what to do if and when a breach of ethical conduct is made. Kathleen will share her perspective on the necessary steps senior executives and boards must take to prepare for and effectively respond to these situations. Understanding that the best defense is a good offense; boards must take lead in establishing a corporate culture of ethics and communicate it successfully across the organization. This session will provide practical suggestions for developing and maintaining an effective ethical disaster response plan, as well as provide key insights on how to build a culture that can helps to mitigate reputational risk before it occurs.
