Risk aversion is common but you don’t have to let it hold you back
The one thing you’ve had to deal with a lot during the Pandemic
has been the huge amount of uncertainty.
Too much uncertainty feels threatening and can make
you want to stay with the status quo.
- You know you’re expected to take risks that are likely to produce the desired outcome. But how can you be sure?
- You used to find risk taking easier before. Now it feels difficult and you’re afraid of stuffing up.
- You’re feeling stuck between a rock and a hard place. Stuck in the uncertainty of the risk and scared of being judged by your superiors and colleagues.
- You’re wondering how come other people don’t seem to find it so difficult. Is it just you?
- You get that life and work is always going to involve taking a risk of some sort, but it’s the unknown impact it can have on others that keeps you procrastinating.
You’re thinking maybe there’s a course you can take or someone who can help you overcome your risk-aversion?
The biggest problem with risk taking is failing to know how to recognise the difference between a smart risk and a risky risk.
Life is busy, challenging and complex. In your role, you’re expected to make many decisions and frequently take a considered risk.
You don’t want to cause your team, colleagues, leaders or organisation pain through taking a foolish risk.
You want to be seen as a smart risk taker but you’re not sure how.
You’re wondering if will ever get easier to make a calculated risk.
The truth is you know you are good at what you do and the risks you take.
You just want to feel more confident in your ability.
When taking a risk feels like climbing Everest without oxygen, you worry
You might be seen as indecisive, not leadership material or a poor action taker
You know your organisation is urgently seeking new ideas, innovation and creative solutions to existing challenges and this is making you more afraid of getting thighs wrong
You will have to face the consequences of a poorly thought out risk
Risk aversion is common
especially during uncertain times
Reducing your fear of getting it wrong starts with recognising when you get it right.
It takes the awareness of which situations
trigger fear and which don’t.
You can overcome your aversion
and learn about smart risk taking more easily
when you have a trusted guide or mentor to show you the way.
It’s about the awareness of how your brain operates when you’re afraid vs. when you have clarity of thought.
Hi I’m Jenny
Medical practitioner, lifestyle medicine physician, award-winning speaker, and best-selling author making YOUR work, work better, so you can enjoy a thriving life.
Like you, I care deeply about my work
and being able to bring my best self to everything I do.
As a doctor, I sought to always act professionally,
to follow the principles of best practice I had been taught
and to not put my patient at risk.
But we’re all different and sometimes I could see the normal protocol
wasn’t the best solution for my patient.
In these situations, I sometimes agonised over the pros and cons of
whether the risk was worth it.
It was ultimately my patient’s choice so I had to ensure what I was proposing
was a smart risk.
Did I worry I might be wrong? Naturally.
Did my fear prevent me from going ahead? No, but it could slow down the recovery process.
