Life is risky business. Risk happens all of the time, in our personal lives, in our businesses and in our world. We often praise adults and certainly CEOs who take risks. So why is it that we work so hard to prevent risk taking behavior in young people? Risk taking is a part of the natural developmental trajectory and helps young people (and adults) develop new skills, achieve goals and push the limits of their learning. This webinar will briefly review the science of adolescent risk taking. Then we will review several strategies to support the type of risk taking that will help young people achieve developmental milestones and achievement goals. We will also explore how we might frame risk taking in a way to help steer adolescents away from the kind of risks that threaten their health and wellness.
