The Merits of Risk: Christopher Barnes at TEDxDenverTeachers

Topics:  Risk Management
Author(s): Christopher Barnes
Video Release Date: June 27, 2016
Video Source: YouTube

Some assume the merits of risk to be self-evident (no A’s without F’s). Yet, this isn’t a commonly shared value among students, parents, or even peer educators; they often don’t understand risk and rarely advocate for it, seeking only “safe” opportunities. All students must embrace risk if they want to reach their potential and be prepared for the future that awaits. Presented by Christopher Barnes, Founder of the High Mountain Institute.
