Be More Entrepreneurial at Work
Entrepreneurship is a major fascination of our times. Even if we don't want to work for ourselves, we’re often expected to think like an entrepreneur in order to bring a greater level of ingenuity and inspiration with us into the workplace. Entrepreneurship is about much more than just the pursuit of profit; it is a way of thinking that seeks to make the world a better place through innovation and commercial discipline.
Entrepreneurs are skilled at spotting possibilities and unmet needs, turning everyday frustrations into opportunities. And, of course, entrepreneurs do more than just mull: they make things happen.
In this workshop, we learn to become blue-sky thinkers, hard-headed pragmatists and rigorous critics. We come up with, and test, new ideas with real-world applications. We cultivate an ability to see opportunities. We engage in critical self-reflection, learning about strengths and weaknesses in our own natures. We also look at ways of dealing with the things that get in the way of action, not least our ideas about failure and risk.
In this CPD accredited workshop, we learn:
• Proven methods to generate innovative commercial ideas
• How to prototype ideas to test functionality and market potential
• Storytelling techniques to connect emotionally with your audience
• The benefits and challenges of failure and how to use these as an opportunity for growth
• How to develop a healthier attitude to risk.
