The Risk Factor
What Extreme Experience Teaches Us About Everyday Performance
Personally and professionally, Roderick Russell is intimately familiar with risk. As a professional sword swallower, presenter, rock climber and coach, he’s seen first-hand the role that risk plays in growth and success.
But along the way, he’s also discovered a rash of misunderstandings that most of us have regarding risk, what it is, and how to utilize it.
In this powerful and entertaining talk, Roderick will demonstrate how swallowing swords and climbing cliffs relates to your business success and living a fulfilling life, and will share stories, strategies and insights that demonstrate:
That most people approach risk in all the wrong ways.
How risk relates to fear, focus and optimal states of performance.
How even the most timid person can learn to risk.
Why risk – for yourself and your business – is necessary and should not be avoided.
How your understanding of risk can and should be updated.
Discover how the old tropes of “facing” or “smashing through” your fears are all wrong and why the self-help industry has it backwards.
In his years of living and working on the edge, Roderick has uncovered the one thing preventing most of us from taking better risks – or often any risks – has developed the tools to eliminate it, and will teach you how to thrive on the edge of your comfort zone.
As a result of this program, your attendees will be able to:
- Reframe their relationship with risk.
- Learn the fundamental tools that will allow them to approach their own personal edge.
- Perform more effectively under pressure.
- Commit to taking on challenging work.
- Increase Resilience.
