Ways of Working

WMPMI's monthly lunchtime meeting is a one-PDU event on a topic from the PMI Talent Triangle. 

Risk Intelligence - Risk EQ

You’ve probably heard of Emotional Intelligence 2.0, or EQ, by Dr. Bradberry and Dr. Greaves. You might have even heard of Sales EQ by Jeb Blount, founder of Salesgravy.com. It’s almost a certainty that you have not heard of Risk EQ.

Risk EQ is an examination of why we approach risks the way we do on an individual level. Risk EQ explores the fight or flight mode, the emotional versus rational parts of the brain and how they affect your decision-making process on your current projects. This presentation will also highlight what you can do about increasing your risk appetite and how you can seek to influence those around you by first understanding your own Risk Intelligence!


  • To understand what Risk Intelligence is.
  • To determine what your own Risk EQ is.
  • Discuss how the fight or flight process works.
  • Determine ways to increase your Risk EQ.
  • Discuss how you might affect the Risk EQ of others.
