Pyschology of failure
Caspar has now delivered his risk taking and decision making seminars and speeches over 1000 times to over 200 different clients winning a number of plaudits and awards along the way - such as "Best New Speaker 2008" for the Academy of Chief Executives.
As a speech it is punchy and entertaining, balancing logic with metaphor and culminating in a rousing and inspiring ending that empowers listeners to take action not just think about it! As a seminar it is obviously more interactive forcing participants to learn by doing in order to better understand why they do what they do.
In all its forms, the material catalyses change within many of those who experience it as a result of its universally relevant subject matter - everyone makes decisions of course - and scientific basis. Caspar's material brings to life an otherwise dry and complicated subject matter and gives people new insight into what drives them and how to change.
In response to numerous clients' requests over the last few years, Caspar has also created a range of speeches focussing on some of the many different elements within the body of his initial speech. He now speaks about Luck, Uncertainty, Risk, Innovation and Change.
Takeaway(Benefit to Client)
A better understanding of what "risk" is and how it is calculated in its essential form. An appreciation of what a decision is: the investment of scarce resources such as time money or reputation into an opportunity with the intention of yielding a long term return in the form of one or more scarce resources as a result. An appreciation, therefore, of the relationship between risk-taking and decision-making and how we constantly embrace some level of risk on a daily and hourly basis in our personal and professional lives.
Fundamentally, participants get an understanding of the difference between a calculated risk and a gamble and an understanding of how to apply this theory in their own personal and professional lives whether that be in sales, innovation, management, continuous, improvement, negotiation or delegation.
Finally, participants and delegates leave with an empowering method for using our own natural risk aversion as a motivational tool that can be used to drive ourselves or others to achieve better long term results in ANYTHING we do!
