Enterprise Risk Management has become a growing discipline in the federal space, but despite these positive indicators, there is still some question about its viability and application. Executive Risk Mindfulness(tm) is all about having the right knowledge, at the right time, and using that knowledge to manage more effectively. This webinar will provide an overview of why Enterprise Risk Management is important for today's leaders, and even more so for future leaders. The webinar, led by one of today's leading experts, will focus on the contents of Dr. Hardy's book and why it's imperative for MPA students as future leaders to absorb this knowledge to help prepare them for success.
