Finding a better way to manage business challenges with BusinessRiskTV.com
And there are always opportunities to grow a business faster too. There are always leadership challenges regardless of era in business. Improve management of the biggest issues facing the business world today.
Inspiring Leadership To Strive To Achieve More In Business
Learn how to overcome leadership challenges. Being a successful business leader means there will always be challenges. The business problems will change but it is naive to thing that your challenges are more difficult than the challenges other leaders have overcome in the past.
Under the radar for many business leaders is the 4th industrial revolution. This new decade will see threats to the survival of some traditional businesses and opportunities to develop new income.
Many thing the coronavirus is a short term problem we need to get to grip with. However the coronavirus outbreak will kill people interrupt business activity and reduce global business growth for the whole of 2020 and much of 2021. However the coronavirus will also drive new ways of working that will last after the virus has been brought under control.
In the UK the biggest issues combined that impact on future business success is poor productivity and lack of skills. UK business leader must invest in capital assets including automation or machinery as well as people. Workers in the UK need dramatic upskilling. There has been a distinct lack of investment over the last decade that needs redressing over the next decade. Instead of whinging about lack of immigration UK business leaders need to be more innovative and invest in engaging existing workforce more.
We can achieve so much more than we are currently doing. There is a significant lack of investment in innovation and new ideas to overcome business challenges. Perhaps it is a hangover from the slow recovery from the 2008 financial crisis. Business leaders have thought about survival for so long that it has suppressed a more creative and innovative business world.
We need to change our business thinking. Invest in innovative thought processes to discover new ways of overcoming business problems in front of us.

Cross business and industry collaboration with BusinessRiskTV.com
BusinessRiskTV Collaborative Business Solutions. Do you want to create more time for your business to grow faster with less uncertainty? Faced with a small budget for business protection and growth would you choose an online group session with other business leaders to save time and money? It is an idea some business leaders are investigating
Group online sessions solve common business problems faster and gives business leaders chance to collaborate with other business leaders with same attitude to business development and protection.
Demand on business leaders time outweighs time available to manage all business risks cost effectively. In recent years the speed of change in the business environment has accelerated putting increased pressures on business leaders wearing many business responsibility hats.
In addition many businesses have complex business systems and business needs which can make finding the best business solutions more difficult to identify.
The traditional one to one business consultation can be prohibitively expensive and the business problem can seem unique when in fact it affects many businesses.
With limited risk management funding or possibility of employing inhouse risk management expert specialists business leaders may need to find innovative ways to find best business solutions quickly within available budget.
Business leaders collaborating on solving business problems together faster and cheaper
Many businesses have the same need for commercial insurance cover and other solutions to protect the business that do not involve insurance. Most if not all business want to increase their opportunities to sell more and increase profitability. Business leaders may seek advice from risk management experts independently to advise on managing such business risks.
Instead of seeing a risk management consultant or business adviser on your own you could get together with a group of other business leaders needing to discuss the same business problems.
If a group of up to 10 business leaders came together with the same business problems could they share experiences to solve risk management problems faster and potentially cheaper?
BusinessRiskTV risk management network partners facilitate online business leader meetings. The risk management facilitator gathers together business leaders with the same or similar business problems problems before the online meetings. The risk management facilitator also compiles a list of questions the participating business leaders want to ask the group that will include attending and participating risk management experts.
The collaborative group of business leaders and risk management experts will know the business problems to be focused on and details of the businesses involved in the online discussion ahead of the online meeting. This will enable attendees to be aware of the potential value of the meeting to them and prepare for the meeting. The participants in the online problem solving meeting must not only prepare to solve their business problems but must be prepared to help share solutions to help other attendees problems.
Sharing problems and helping solve others problems is the purpose of the meeting.
The problem solving group may well discuss sensitive issues. This does not need to constrain those attending. Trust quickly develops as participants quickly realise they are not alone with their business problem and that they are talking to people who have already solved their problem. You create a bond with your fellow business leaders. The more you open up the more you get out of the meeting for your business. The sharing of experiences with other business leaders can be empowering.
The aim of the collaborative online meetings is to quickly find solutions to business problems to save time and money for the participants. Participants access more practical problem solving information that has worked already. The meetings help business leaders to more cost effectively use their own time and resources in solving their business problems and the business problems of others. As they are common problems experienced by all those attending then common solutions that actually work well will come to light without the need for discussion duplication.
You may prefer a one to one meeting with a business risk management consultant if you have the budget. However why reinvent the wheel. Other business leaders have solved your business problem already. Tap into their experience to solve your business problems quicker and potentially cheaper.
Collaborative business problem solving online meetings are for business leaders who already know what their business problems are. They just want to know the solutions quickly so they can go off and implement them for themselves and their business.
It is unlikely that people will attending the meeting will diagnose the problem that is holding your business back. That is not the purpose of the online meetings. You identify what your business risks are and come to the meeting to find risk management solutions or ideas that have worked and could work for your business.
There are measures in place to ensure the confidentiality of information shared within the group and you can see one of our risk management experts from our risk management network on an online one to one appointment who will have seen your business problem before. However collaborative group sessions can quickly overcome barriers to your business growth and a valuable peer support network.

In an increasingly litigious and unforgiving society should business leaders take personal responsibility for business mistakes? In previous decades business leaders and politicians were often seen falling on their sword following risk events whether they were personally responsible or not.
However either through fear of legal action or fear of being lynched online or offline leaders now rarely fess up to being to blame. There have been some exceptions but over recent decades leaders have toughed it out or doubled up on their mistakes.
It was on my watch so I am responsible
Is the fear of blame or blame culture led us to the position that we are failing to learn from mistakes?
Regardless of the cause there is a definite change in the honour or moral standing of our leaders. Leaders who make mistakes have to be brought screaming and shouting to be held to account when mistakes happen. More often than not they are then retired early literally or metaphorically to avoid personal accountability.
Many people respect people who make mistakes more if they take responsibility for mistakes. To err is human after all even when it is a computer fault!
Would it not be better if our leaders accept responsibility for mistakes and then created a written plan to avoid making the same mistakes again in future
Does a business organisation or political party not lose the opportunity to truly learn from mistakes made if the leaders are immediately jettisoned following mistakes. Leaders voluntarily stepping down following mistakes or failures are actually taking the easy way out for themselves not necessarily the business.
Why do our leaders not clear up their own mess more often?
Our next online enterprise risk management conference event is exploring the need for greater accountability in business and in society in general.
BusinessRiskTV Leadership Conference online events seek to engage top business leaders around the world in enterprise risk management topics. The result of the online discussions and interactions are not published. Instead the participants who have contributed reap the benefits for their own organisations. Their takeaways can be embedded to improve their own organisation risk management performance.

Overcoming procrastination with BusinessRiskTV.com
Procrastination is one of the biggest risks business leaders face. Putting business decisions off until tomorrow is delaying success and future growth. The best time to act to improve your business performance is now.
Manage out the uncertainty of your business decision making process to make better decisions quicker to improve business performance faster
If you do not make the decision presented to you at least you can say it was not your fault it went tits up! Right? Maybe but your procrastination may be impeding your business performance.
With procrastination you are not managing business risks. You are just delaying the management of risks. Face up to your business risks today!
Many business leaders procrastinate on business risks because they think that risk events will not affect their business or that they have commercial insurance so are adequately protected from business risks. Simply effectively burying head in sand will not change a thing about your business risks. Commercial insurance may provide some money when you really need it however most business risks are uninsured or uninsurable even when you have an insurance policy!
Why procrastination is bad for your business
If you are leading your business and you are a procrastinator you may well miss business growth opportunities. Worse you maybe threatening the survival of your business should a risk event occur and you buried your head in the sand leaving your business unable to cope with the consequences of the risk event materialisation.
A big drain on your business success could be having business planning meetings without actually making changes to the business. Decide what is best and act with more confidence with enterprise risk management ERM!
Too often business leaders take comfort in talking about changes to the business but do not like the responsibility or accountability arising from actual actions to change the business. It is easy to talk a good game!
Stop avoiding the tough decisions in business
Initiate the changes necessary to improve your business performance. Accomplish more with your existing business resources and stop making excuses or blaming others! Take action and stop procrastinating. Take the right risks for your business success in future.
Deferring business decisions frustrates most people in your business. Confident business leaders assess the risks and become action takers proactively putting in place cost effective risk management controls.
Get ahead of your competition before the opportunity for business growth disappears for your business
You may think your procrastination is not damaging your business. Chances are it is in one way or another.

Do you want to invest in your business future today
Our future is here. We need to invest hard cash into the money innovative ideas that are just seedlings. In addition we need to invest money on old ideas that have legs but no backers. There are enormous opportunities for business and economic growth. Trouble is that we are still trying to make the obsolete ideas work for us now.
Global manufacturing has hit the buffers. There has been a rapid contraction of global manufacturing output largely due to global trade war between China and USA as well as Brexit uncertainty. Manufacturers have cut back on production and are making workers redundant.
Some parts of the world like USA Germany and UK have low unemployment levels and could cope with job losses but most of Europe cannot. Europe ha snot recovered the jobs lost in the last financial crisis.
Even in America USA manufacturers are suffering. Who is winning the trade war is unclear but it seems that there are two losers rather than one winner.
In the UK and broader European manufacturing marketplace manufacturers are suffering the double whammy of global slowdown and Brexit uncertainty. There could be two losers here too if they politicians do not agree a deal.
The world is seeing low levels of business activity not witnessed since the last recession in 2008 caused factories to shut up shop.
The global and UK manufacturing marketplaces are grinding to a halt. The solution is not to button down the hatches to weather the growing global economic storm. The solution is to invest in real opportunities for business growth we already have before us.
Businesses say that their biggest fear is of governments overspending. Borrowing to cover day to day expenses is the start of a slippery slope to perpetual poverty. UK governments borrowing to invest in infrastructure will support businesses to grow faster.
It is ridiculous that all parts of the UK do not have superfast broadband. So many opportunities could open up if this simple technology was available to all entrepreneurs.
Instead the world is shutting up shop. There is no shortage of great ideas. There is a shortage of money being invested in our future today.

UK economic growth 2018 started more slowly than end of 2017. The UK economy news is normally weaker at the beginning of the calendar year. Most of the UKs economic growth comes as the calendar year progresses.
Governor of the Bank of England Mr Carney
Mr Mark Carney the head of the Bank of England says poor UK economic activity at the beginning of the calendar year 2018 was due to the weather and not UK economic climate.
In addition Mr Carney reports that all slack in the UK economy has been taken up and this is likely to push up UK prices and UK inflation.
With very high levels of employment low levels of unemployment and a million plus job vacancies unfilled it is more likely that wages will increase faster. UK employers will need to pay more to attract candidates and to keep existing staff.
Mr Carney paints a rosier future for the UK economy in 2018 with downside risks including global international trade war. UK interest rates more likely to rise later this year and this should boost value of the UK pound.

BusinessRiskTV.com How To Expand Your Business Internationally and Locally
Corporate or enterprise entities do not make mistakes or create a bad business culture executives do. Illegal unethical or bad business practices arise because that’s the way executives want a company to achieve corporate objectives. Executives may or may not consider their business practices as bad or unethical but the result is the same corporate misbehaviour.
Understanding corporate misbehaviour
It may be a pointless waste of money undertaking a business health check if the executives are going to be unreceptive to the final risk management report, or simple pay lip-service to the outcomes.
Many CEOs know what game needs to be played with enterprise risk management ERM before they can return to their own agenda for the business. Internal or external risk management audits can just play into the CEO’s attitude to risk management. Such executives short-term philosophy seems to rely on the hope that the shit doesn’t hit the fan during their time as CEO and whatever happens after they move on is not a concern for some incumbent CEOs.
Much of executive misbehaviour, and therefore corporate misbehaviour, is a direct result of executive pay and associated benefits. Misdirecting executive pay and rewards drives most if not all catastrophic corporate collapses. Before the collapse poor executive pay and rewards strategies poison business innovation and employee motivation.
To anticipate which companies will survive sustainably you could look at how executives are rewarded. It is the single biggest driver of corporate culture and long-term success, or not as the case maybe.
Executive managers cause corporate scandals, corporate scandals are not externally driven. The proximate cause of the corporate scandal or collapse doesn’t start further down the organisation nor does it start from outside the company. CEO bad behaviour is normally the proximate cost or the catalyst for corporate collapse.
Corporate scandals aren’t a surprise to most executives, never mind the CEO. They take the level of risk they think is required to achieve their business objectives. They roll the dice and sometimes it pays off and sometimes it doesn’t.
For example, many in the banking and finance industry look upon the financial crisis as an external risk that impacted on their business strategy. No, or little, blame can be placed at the bankers door! It was all the other bankers and financers who were at fault for their share price collapse, mass redundancies and lost business opportunities – not their fault as their business was doing just fine until the financial crisis tsunami hit their business.
Such egotistical responses stem from either self preservation, or lack of care for their part in the near global systemic financial collapse of the banking and financial sector and the very near global anarchy which would have ensued. Politicians, who were part of the problem, became part of the solution – make money as cheap as possible via low interest rates and massive almost unremitting quantitative easing QE.
Mothers forget how bad childbirth was
More than a decade after the start of the financial crisis there is still mass unemployment in the developed world and the developing world lost a decade of opportunity to crawl out of poverty. However, the key decision-makers in the business world have either forgiven themselves or reinvented themselves in position of power. In addition, a new raft of politicians are in place, or about to find positions of power, to facilitate the next financial crisis.
At its least useful, enterprise risk management ERM is a tool to spread the blame should the shit hit the fan, so one would have thought that ERM could be more popular than it is. At its most useful it helps business leaders make business decisions that are more likely to be good ones for the long-term sustainability of the business for the benefit of all stakeholders in the business – including the CEO.
Beating your competitors to top high performing talent
Fill your skills gaps faster to increase your business productivity with better access to more high-performing recruits. Attract develop and retain talent your competitors can’t find or attract.
A growing skills gap in the UK Australia and USA will hold back organisations who are not more innovative and creative with their recruitment process. It is one of the biggest threats to corporate objectives this year.
Retaining increasingly expensive employees is also key to improve business model sustainability.Its more profitable to keep talented high performers. They have the skills and knowledge to help you grow faster and replacing them will impact on your profit and make it less likely you will achieve your business objectives.
So you’ve got talented staff but how do you turn them into high performers
Attracting and retaining the best employees can be supported by selling and delivering better employee engagement strategy. Engage your employees more to help you achieve your business objectives with more certainty.
Recruitment strategies to attract and retain talent in UK
How do you attract the right employees to help you improve your business performance? Many employees are looking for an opportunity to help your business grow faster. To retain such employees you need to develop them to help develop your business.
We can work with you to turn new recruit enthusiasm into improved results working together with more established employees who know your business processes and objectives well.
There is enormous costs associated with recruiting employees. What a waste to let this talent pass leave quickly through high turnover of staff. Work harder at retaining staff and not only will you boost your business performance, but you will reduce your recruitment costs, as people will stick with you, not leave to join your competitor.
Get help from BusinessRiskTV to help you attract and retain the best people in the UK. Increase your chances of business success by developing your existing business leaders to implement a new improved business strategy.
High employee turnover costs you time, money and your personal productivity. Top talent is hard to attract and even harder to keep. Adopt new more creative ways to source, select and retain talented employees.

Every threat comes with an opportunity to change for the better.
Every opportunity comes with a threat that the new will destroy existing value.

Mindfulness For Business Leaders
Leaders in business may benefit from learning more about mindfulness
Your not working alone!
Lloyds plc CEO is recently reported in Financial Times to have advocated the use of mindfulness for himself and his executives.
The Job Can Kill You
Antonion Horta-Osorio was interviewed by Financial Times and he said the stress of the job nearly broke him within months of becoming the chief executive of Lloyds bank at perhaps one of the banks most risky times. The bank had narrowly avoided total collapse and nearly half of it was taken into public ownership by the UK government.
The CEO had to seek psychological support and advice to prevent a possible nervous breakdown. He realised he was not Superman and sought the guidance of a psychiatrist. Prior to his near breakdown he hadn’t looked after his mental health enough. He was speaking out to raise awareness of mental health problems at work.
From the CEO’s own experience he is now introducing a programme for his senior leadership team of 200 executives to make them aware of the measures the CEO learnt including mindfulness and psychological testing. From these executives, it is hoped that the culture within Lloyds will change to prevent people further down the organisation quitting especially at a time where there is a skills shortage.
Not only could this improve the lives of all Lloyds staff, it could boost individual performance retain staff and boost corporate performance.
