Entrepreneurial Ⓜ️indset Network
Our aim is to help individuals, team leaders and organisations to benefit from adopting entrepreneurial ways of thinking and acting. This page gives examples of entrepreneurial behaviours that you can use to great effect in your day-to-day work and in the core business of your organisation.
Our distinctive proposition is that the benefits of entrepreneurial thinking are not confined to running your own business. In fact, we are pioneering the practical application of the entrepreneurial mindset in healthcare, higher education and local government.
Entrepreneurship is a fundamental way of thinking and acting so as to make a real difference in people's lives. Entrepreneurship equates to thinking with the right Ⓜ️indset and taking action to bring about substantial Change. Most people can learn how to think and act like an entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurs choose to take personal responsibility for making things happen. Like an entrepreneur, instead of waiting for someone else, you ask yourself "If I think this is important then what am I personally going to do about it?"
The pressure to do even more with even less is here - and it is not going to go away. You can regain control of this situation. Like an entrepreneur, you can take action, be determined and be resilient in the face of obstacles.
Entrepreneurs take risks. Like an entrepreneur you can learn to take calculated risks and thereby help your organisation to become more innovative and improve its services
Entrepreneurs understand money: how to generate income, manage a budget and make a profit. Like an entrepreneur, you can be confident about finance and learn how to make smarter use of resources.
Entrepreneurs often don't fit the media stereotype of being loners. In reality, their success depends on good collaboration. Like an entrepreneur, you can work across boundaries and build partnerships.
Some entrepreneurs have bad reputations e.g. for excessive profits, poor employment practices or avoiding tax. Our definition of being entrepreneurial rejects these behaviours and requires that you strive for ethical behaviour at all times.
