Phil’s Faves – Worst Case Scenario

In my workshops and presentations, I often encourage people to be bold, take risks and try something new or different to improve their overall results. 

To help them deal with typical resistance-to-change and risk-avoidance reactions, I challenge them to consider the Worst Case Scenario ‘What’s the worst thing that can happen to you/your business if you try this new/different thing and it fails? If you’ll still be alive, out of jail and in business, what have you got to loose?’

This little dose of analysis can help people be more confident and decisive. And if they choose not to try the new/different thing, at least they considered it logically.
