The power of the Entrepreneurial Mindset in Business
The world-wide crisis of 2020 arising from the COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented in recent history. The consequences have been dramatic at many levels - individual, family, business, town/city, country and the world. The challenges are wide ranging and are manifest in economic, social and cultural impacts.
As countries went into lock down, businesses became cut off from their customers. Cashflow has been so severely affected that financial viability of many companies has been threatened. Perhaps the greatest challenge is the ongoing uncertainty about when things might be able to return to normal. As the situation drags on, businesses have no choice but to try to adapt to the new circumstances. For example, digital tools are increasingly being employed to connect to customers and to enable employees to work from home.
Introduction to the course
This course is designed to help Business Owners, CEOs, Heads of HR, Leaders and Managers respond to the many challenges created by the global pandemic. The course is offered by the Entrepreneurial Mindset Network, a free membership organisation with members in 73 countries. The Network’s mission is to enable individuals to create change - whether in their own lives, their team, their organisation or society - through the power of the entrepreneurial mindset.
Step-by-step you will be guided to develop a detailed understanding of the entrepreneurial mindset and its benefits for you and your company. Each section of the course includes a number of short videos that provide detailed explanations and communicate the main concepts. Self-reflection and practical exercises will help you to apply the mindset to your own personal context and achieve the full benefits of the course. Each section includes a graded quiz, so that you can test your understanding of the key concepts and get immediate feedback on your progress.
The aim is to help you to change your behaviours to be more entrepreneurial so that you can embrace new ways of working. Entrepreneurial behaviours will help you rise to the challenge of not just coping but thriving in a time of great change. In turn you can role model these behaviours to other people so that they too can adapt to the new circumstances. The mindset is a common framework within which each individual, each team and each company can ask the right questions that will help them to create the solutions that are most suited to their own context
