What is “Real” Risk Management? and The Ten Families of Risk

The phrase “risk management” gets thrown around quite a bit, but what is “real” risk management? It is more than the “safety” stuff. It is more than the “insurance” stuff. And it is more than the “ergonomics” stuff. Everything we do in life involves a level of risk – and the same is true with what you do professionally. These sessions will explain how to “recognize” the real risks you face, give you thoughts on how to “prioritize” these risks, and will show you how to “mobilize” to do something about the real risks you face.

The Importance of Discipline

 “Rules without enforcement are just nice words.” This session will address the critical issue of employee discipline – what it is and what it is not. Failure to discipline in a prompt, fair and consistent manner is a ticket for nothing but future problems and there are many legal and “risk” concerns involved in this process that need to be fully understood.

Customer Service – Creating some “WOW”

As we enter the 21st century, the public sector is being analyzed like never before. Customer service has always been important, but now the survival of any public sector organization is dependent on the maximization of this concept on each and every contact made. Who, What, Why, When, Where, How and How Often is a symmetric approach to this important topic.
