How much of a risk taker are you?
How is this reflected in your organization?
Do others follow your risk-taking example?
It’s no secret that CEOs set company tones.
And they attract risk takers like themselves.
New research shows this is a healthy sign.
Risk-takers are more aggressive about success.
They tend to run more profitable organizations.
They create higher value and greater esprit.
Cautious CEOs create cautious organizations.
Less successful, less profitable ones, too.
First responders are risk takers, too.
They have to be. It’s the nature of the work.
That does not mean they take foolish chances.
When buildings are ablaze, they run forward, not away.
All of us saw this on the 9-11 newscasts in 2001.
Email me your feelings about these brave individuals.
What do you think we have learned from 9-11?
How do you feel we have handled our security risks.
We will include this in our 9-11 Commemorative.

Our deadline is Friday, August 26
