Strategy Statement:

Risky behavior is seldom seen as beneficial. Your statement should reflect a personal decision, and not a work-related decision. How do you minimize risk when making a decision?

Sample Response:Our decision to relocate from Michigan is the riskiest one ever made. It involved a long process of research, conversation/discussion, reasoning and problem-solving.

The relocation was going to mean a switch in careers, and perhaps require some training and further education. It was also going to mean re-engaging in a vibrant market, where innovation and enthusiasm were seen as premiums. The ‘pluses’ far outweighed the ‘negatives’, and in a leap-of-faith (which is always more comfortable following research, discussion and reasoning!) we relocated.
