InsideRisk triggers cognitive breakthroughs by thrusting your collaborators into real cases.

Scientific research shows the effectiveness of experiential learning.

A wide body of research demonstrates that people's capacity to apply their learnings in the long term is drastically increased if their training reproduces the emotional response they would have in the real world. This is why, in every InsideRisk program, we put the participants into the shoes of real-life protagonists.


Your collaborators will retain and master the soft skills that will amplify their leadership impact and performance.

Real-life protagonists

The case features the exclusive testimonials of the former General Director of the IOC and the Chief Operating Officer of the 1996 Olympics.

As General Director of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Francois Carrard supervised seven editions of the Olympic Games, from Albertville 1992 until Salt Lake City 2002.

During these years, François collaborated closely with AD Frazier, the Chief Operating Office of the Atlanta Games, preparing for what was going to be one of the most well organized and profitable Summer Olympics ever put together.

Neither François, nor AD ever imagined that – in the midst of a terrorist attack that took place during the 1996 Atlanta Games – they would be called upon to make, together, one of the most difficult decisions in the history of the Olympics: to stop or continue the Games.

Your team members will be immersed in confronting one of the most difficult decisions made in the history of the Olympics.

Game-Changing Idea #1

What is the first thing that high-performing decision-makers do when they face a critical situation?

Your people will experience the challenge of defining a very complex problem. They will discover the nuts and bolts of "reframing", the process of changing the perspective or interpretation of a problem or situation to generate new insights or solutions..


Game-Changing Idea #2

Do your teams look for the most robust way of framing the problem?

Before firming up the contours of the decision that they have to make, your team members will have to develop a solution that points toward success under several different frames.

Game-Changing Idea #3

Do your teams have a methodology to visualize their stakeholders and create real-time alignment?

Powered by:


Your collaborators will experience the power of mapping the stakeholders' perspectives in regard to an evolving situation. They will realize that a simple methodology allows them to deal much more confidently with uncertain contexts and acquire a sharp understanding of the decisions to be made. Also, risks visualization is key to prepare teams for an effective implementation of the decision.

Game-Changing Idea #4

Are your people's decisions driven by sunk costs? 

People often make the mistake of letting past investments influence their decision to continue with a project, falsely believing that carrying on is the only way to justify these costs. However, when costs continually rise with no obvious end, it's sometimes best to make the tough decision to halt the project. "When is the right time to abandon a project?" is a key question that your team members will face during their immersion.

Game-Changing Idea #5

Are your teams making gender biased decisions?

Is any one gender more risk averse than the other, or more capable of taking the lead in high-stakes situations? This essential question gets very different answers depending on the organizational context in which a team operates. According to some of the most recent scientific research, there's plenty of evidence showing that this debate – often a tacit one – is strongly distorted by gender biases. This often obstructs organizations and teams from selecting the most suitable people to achieve ambitious goals.

Game-Changing Idea #6

Do your people assess the quality of decisions made by others based on outcome or process? 

People tend to assess a decision based on its outcome, rather than on the quality of its process. The problem with the 'outcome-based' decision approach is that it often obliterates the true reasons for success and failure, and prevents people from changing course at the right time to achieve high-performance.

Game-Changing Idea #7

Are your people taking the risks required to lead them to a more purposeful life? 

The human brain is wired to resist change and reduce risks, in a constant effort to save energy and seek for safety. This primal reflex often gets in people's way, hindering risk-taking and and keeps them from reaching more meaningful goals.

Your collaborators will discover the InsideRisk Decision-Making Framework, which integrates the best practices and research on decision-making
