Online Program: Social Psychology of Risk foundation


Jun 18 2024


@ London time (4 sessions: June 18, 20, 25 and 27)
8:30 am - 10:00 am



This online workshop will help participants to engage with Social Psychology of Risk (SPoR) in a practical and experiential way. SPoR is about understanding how we as human beings make decisions under the influence of social arrangements and how we relate to each other. It is a different way of understanding and tackling risk using practical methods and intuitive tools. In SPoR we focus on:

  1. the power of the unconscious mind in human decision-making
  2. the significance of people and relationships in understanding and improving organisational culture
  3. The importance of culture maturity for improving risk intelligence
The iCue engagement process

The iCue engagement process

iCue is a visual framework for understanding and visualising how human beings make decisions. The word iCue is not accidental but rather comes from the criticality of understanding the many ‘cues’ people give us in conversation if we have developed skills in effective listening and open questioning. The idea of being intelligent about these ‘cues’ is central to the iCue Engagement Process.
