We talk a lot about risk management in the Air Force and most of it is geared towards avoiding or mitigating risks. We do need to avoid those risks that could harm us or damage something; however, we often take this mentality too far and avoid ALL risks. New opportunities could also be defined as a risk. If we want to challenge ourselves or our teams we need to take risks that could advance the unit even if there is a risk of failure. Calculated risks are a good thing.
