Risk Assessment Matrix


Using this tool can help us understand how we relate to risk.

Do you tend to catastrophize about situations that are likely safe? Or do you overlook some of the risks and agree to situations that are actually dangerous?

5 Risk-Assessment Questions

Pausing to reflect before taking a risk may help you untangle the options and find a clearer answer.  Asking yourself these questions may also aid you in your decision-making process.

  1. What do I stand to gain by taking this risk?

  2. What do I stand to lose?

  3. How does the possibility make me feel?

  4. How do I want to feel?

  5. Is this decision mine?
