Chapter 27. Risk to Action Steps Diagram > Exercise 1: How Bad is it Really?

Exercise 1: How Bad is it Really?

Using the following scale, pinpoint your willingness to take risks. The descriptions next to the scale suggest what a person who exercises low, medium or high risk behavior might do. Make an x on the vertical line where you think your risk factors are. (For example, if you feel that any action on your part would endanger future employment, you will mark an x between 0 and 3 on the vertical line.)

RISK FACTORS


High Risk: Completely open and direct about what I feel and think. Unafraid of negative consequences. Know I can get a better job, probably with better pay. Do not feel locked in to benefits. Will leave if things get impossible.
Medium Risk: Can raise some issues and discuss some feelings and ideas. Carefully choose the issues that I need to raise, but ignore others. Use some upward management techniques.
Low Risk: Accept things as they are. Am very cautious about rocking the boat. Will not talk at all about my concerns for fear of retribution. Cannot risk losing job and benefits.
