“This is my first book. I wrote it because I want to demystify risk for executives and introduce a new perspective on risk.”
– Lisa Sisson
Are you wondering if there’s a better way to manage risk in your organisation?
If you truly want to minimise your organisation’s exposure to risk, you have to do so with and through your people.
Risk management has become increasingly cumbersome, costly and a distraction for many organisations, but once you understand that people are at the centre of all risk, you can move forward to empower your greatest risk management asset… your people.
When you read this book you will understand how to:
- Unlock the value of your people to mitigate risk and open up opportunity
- Break risk down so you have no need to fear it
- Build a healthy and productive work environment with an engaged and motivated workforce
- ‘PROTECT the House’ – your organisation – with an innovative and practical approach to risk
Insightful and thought provoking
A fantastic read, this is easy to follow and digest. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to learn more about risk in organisations and why people are at the centre.
An engaging book that redefines how organisations view risks
Gone are the days where a ‘check the box’ approach is used to understand risk. What Lisa proposes is refreshing, human centred approach to risk where people are valued and risk is mitigated.
I would recommend this book to HR managers, risk, governance and legal professionals as well as all levels of management.

Unique and timely insights into the world of risk
I can highly recommend this book to anyone who has a specific interest in security related risks or for anyone who wants a unique and contemporary insight into how to view risk more generally. The Author has clearly thought deeply about the world of risk and come to the significant but elegantly simple insight that risk really is about people. This book is written in a style that makes it easy to read and understand some new and exciting insights about how risk can be viewed and managed. This is a must read for anyone that is serious about genuinely reducing risk within their organisations, communities, or other entities where the potential for harmfulness exists.
A valuable read
This is a very important contribution. Well-written, well-researched and drawing on extensive practical experience.
The root cause of risk
This book offers a new perspective on risk in the workplace. Rather than cold hard systems and processes the truth is that organisation’s are made up of people administering those things and that is where the real risk lies.
I found it surprisingly engaging and easy to read for a book on this subject.
Recommended reading for all business leaders.
The importance of people
I recommend this book to anyone working in risk management or with an interest in how risks can present opportunity. By focusing solely on the important role of people, the book introduces balance to an industry that is heavily skewed towards technology, processes, and protocols. Case studies and examples bring the content to life.
A must read
A must read for anyone that is in business, is thinking of starting one or anyone that seeks to improve their lives by design and risk mitigation. Whether we like it or not, we are all in the business of people. In “Risk starts and ends with people” the Author goes on to provide key insights based on human Psychology and well researched case studies that is easy to understand and more importantly implement not just into our businesses but also in the way we turn up and interact with the world at large. From someone that has spent almost a decade working with professional sporting teams, Specialised units within the Defence force and leading teams through some of the of the most inhospitable locations I wish this book was available much earlier. Do your self a favour and give yourself the edge of understanding how “Risk” starts and Ends with people.

A balanced and practical approach to risk management
A fantastic read with relevance and application to all organisations. Lisa struck a great balance between theory, practical examples to bring it all to life and personal insights that acted as genuine and honest advice. The structure tells a coherent story and the language is simple and accessible. 5 stars!
A refreshingly different perspective on organisational risk
Page by page, Lisa makes the compelling case that “risk starts and ends with people”. By the end of the book, you’re left scratching your head at how a people-centred approach hasn’t always been the way to approach risk management and for that matter, business itself.
Lisa generously shares the insights behind her models and methodologies, showing the reader how her approach can allow them to navigate risk and also open up opportunity for an organisation.
For any leader that considers themself to be people-oriented, this book is a must-read. Where you may feel intuitively that your people are capable of so much more than they are able to demonstrate, this book will show you the way to unlocking that potential and transforming your organisation along the way.
More than a book on risk
This is not only a book on risk, it is a book on leadership, change management and offers thoroughly informed insights throughout. It places the human element as the central point, not the by-product, user or consumer. Lisa is able to dispel risk fear and offer tips to avoid the ‘risk vortex’ and realise opportunities for businesses and organisations. Lisa has a special knack of making the complex appear simple, with an incredible ability to distil and frame multiple important concepts. A highly engaging read!

Lisa Sisson, is a woman on a mission.
As founder of risk consultancy, Unearth, Lisa is driven by a strong sense of purpose, to create a safer world. She believes when people feel safe, they are empowered to give their best efforts without fear of failure.
This purpose inspires her work at Unearth, her speaking and this, her first book. It offers a unique perspective within an industry that is heavily process and technology driven, making her somewhat of a “Risk Rebel”.
