Back in October 2010 Dr Gillian Hyde, a consultant psychologist and Director of PCL ran a fascinating Meyler Campbell Fishbowl, demonstrating the use of the Hogan Dark Side (HDS) in executive coaching. The following is a piece about Managing risk: the human factor developed from a piece of PCL’s research and featured in the Sunday Times.
Success and survival rely on identifying opportunities and potential threats that stem from the risk characteristics of both individuals and teams, and their influence on organisational culture. On November 1, at RSA House, Geoff Trickey from PCL presented ground breaking research into Risk Type illustrating effective alternative routes through these increasingly pressing challenges by linking individual psychology to risk behaviour. He was joined by ex accountant turned organisational psychologist and executive coach David Cooper.
PCL’s research report introduces the Risk-Type Compass and illustrates the differences in risk-type profile found between generations, between public and private sector employees, and between specific professions. The report also focuses on practical solutions for coaches, executives, managers, and individuals who need to get a grip on the risk issues faced by their organisation.
The presentation received excellent media coverage including a Sunday Times feature article, see link below.
