100% certainty is ‘as rare as hen’s teeth’, yet we often need to make decisions whatever the uncertainties ahead. The success or failure of any enterprise is defined wholly by its decision-making.  This is the crucible in which all our futures are created. This puts a lot of weight on the way we make decisions, who is involved and what biases they might bring to the table.

The Risk Type Compass models risk-taking personality. Recognising that decision-making involves our Cognition and our Emotion, the RTC psychometrically measures these key features of mental life to define our individual risk dispositions.

This RTC workshop will not only allow for personal development through exploring one’s own decision-making style but will also cover all areas of the RTC tool which allow you to become a fully certified trained user.

Geoff Trickey, Chartered Occupational Psychologist and creator of RTC, and Chloe Davis, Consultant Psychologist at PCL, will be facilitating this workshop, providing you with confidence that your training, usually priced at £495+VAT, will be conducted by highly experienced psychologists to equip you with the skills required to incorporate the tool within your portfolio.
