The Effective Entrepreneur

  • Do you want to develop essential behaviours, attitudes and skills for entrepreneurship?

    What does it take to be an entrepreneur? And if you think you are one, how do you hone those skills to be more effective? Many organisations, from sole traders to large corporations seek entrepreneurial behaviour, but what exactly does this mean, and how do individuals develop the necessary capabilities? Many entrepreneurship courses focus on business planning, marketing, financing and the practical aspects of developing a business, but these all rely on individual behaviours, attitudes, skills and knowledge that enable a person to succeed in an entrepreneurial environment.

    This workshop aims to uncover and develop the fundamental skill set for entrepreneurs, providing essential knowledge and skills to would-be entrepreneurs, those already running their own business, and employees with ambitions to drive change.

    Topics include:

    • What makes a good entrepreneur?
    • Identifying opportunities and their sources
    • Pattern recognition and linking
    • Critical thinking, idea testing and shaping
    • Visioning and entrepreneurial leadership
    • Proposition selling and demonstrating value
    • Negotiation and Influencing
    • Mobilising support, building consensus
    • Intelligent risk taking and failure tolerance
    • Decision making within uncertainty
    • Proactivity, success orientation and initiative taking
