Leaders, Managers, Owners, CEO’s Entrepreneurs, Franchisees…
Entrepreneurial Thinking® is a mindset that leaders and their teams can embrace in order to challenge assumptions, solve problems, innovate and create positive change in their organization. Professional services, sales organizations, healthcare and any industry dedicated to turning challenges into opportunities can benefit.
This mindset and way of thinking encourages individuals and organizations to think like an entrepreneur and take “personal ownership” for results at every turn. This allows for a more dedicated and engaged workforce. Never before has there been a greater need for more employee engagement in order to drive results and stay ahead of the curve. We’ve all seen the studies on employee engagement showing dismal results overall. When it comes to Millenials, Gallup found that 71% are either not engaged or actively disengaged at work.
But what is employee engagement? Those two words are becoming tired, worn out and outdated but have been used to describe how involved and connected employees are to their work. What we do know is that employee engagement drives innovation, growth, impacts the bottom line and can be your competitive differentiator. What you decide to call it is up to you. However, the reality is and the research shows that people want a chance to get better at what they do and want to be connected to something bigger than themselves. The principles of Entrepreneurial Thinking® allows you to do just that.
Why Entrepreneurial Thinking® and Why Now?
I have been helping organizations and audiences thrive with my trademarked program “Entrepreneurial Thinking” for years. Early on it was evident there were some organizations that were afraid of the word entrepreneurial and to allow for more creativity and risk taking at work. Some are no longer around or were forced to dramatically reinvent themselves. Due to technology and the speed at which change occurs it is more important than ever before to capitalize on the entrepreneurial and ownership culture to create an engaged, creative, innovative, agile and forward thinking organization.
Entrepreneurial Thinking® is Your Competitive Advantage
Driven by my customers and the research I conducted for presentations and trainings over the past 20 years it became clear to me that leaders faced numerous challenges when it came to bringing out the best in their people to stay ahead of the curve. Businesses can learn from the start-up mentality that has allowed many small companies to actually turn entire industries upside down. Not only do businesses benefit, but governments, communities and colleges have begun to apply the concepts as well.
I describe Entrepreneurial Thinking® as taking “personal ownership for results” and who doesn’t want that? It means that as you’re faced with changes in your industry, new technologies and new ways of collaborating you need a team up to the challenge and willing to go the extra mile for all the right reasons. They need to be connected to purpose and be in an environment where they can fully use their talents and strengths. Entrepreneurial Thinking® will continue to change the way we work and live.
Entrepreneurial Thinking® can be integrated into your culture to improve morale, increase sales and teamwork, enhance your customer service and improve productivity.
