How To Promote Critical Thinking And Adaptability By Fostering Entrepreneurial Mindsets

In recent times, a number of pieces of important research have highlighted the need for – and importance of – enterprise capabilities for the future workplace. But how do we most effectively promote these capabilities across various areas of expertise or industries? One approach is through the development of entrepreneurship skills and mindset. In this hands-on workshop, you will be introduced to some practical methods that you can introduce to your team – from product to sales to operations – to drive greater entrepreneurship capabilities and thus a more equipped and adaptable team.

You will learn:

  • How to develop experiential learning experiences that foster entrepreneurial capabilities
  • How to set an entrepreneurship challenge and drive capability development
  • The key elements of an entrepreneurial mindset that are universally relevant

During the workshop you will develop your own experiential learning program for your organisation.
