To whom it is addressed?
The program has 3 components, addressing:
- Corporate clients
The seminar has two overriding goals:
- the participants learn and start using entrepreneurial basics in their jobs. The rationale is that building and growing a business is very different from “managing” a business.
- The seminar offers participants a unique grounding in the bedrock fundamentals of high growth enterprise.
Entrepreneurial behavior is distilled into a series of business practices that any employee in any company can use. To insure the objective of instilling these practices back on the job, over half the session is devoted to the 14 Application exercises. The Applications ultimately represent participant commitments to raise their individual spirit of enterprise and the company’s overall competitiveness. At the close, all the team Applications are collected and delivered to senior management for implementation follow-up. In addition each participant is asked to personally commit to implementing the five highest impact “entrepreneurial” actions within his/her own area of responsibility the first week back on the job.
