Entrepreneurial Ⓜ️indset Network
Our aim is to help local government to realise the potential benefits of entrepreneurial thinking in addressing the complex challenges they face and in helping them to transform their services to their citizens. On this page you can find out about the support we offer.
Our approach is distinctive because we think that the Entrepreneurial Mindset is relevant to addressing the numerous challenges facing local government whilst at the same time not conflicting with its core values. The mindset can provide the break through to the much-needed, but difficult to achieve, transformation of local government services.
We offer briefings for executive & senior teams, Mindset Essentials workshops, entrepreneurial health checks, and we support transformational change via consultancy and bespoke workshops.
Mindset Essentials Workshops
We offer two half-day workshops on the entrepreneurial mindset in local government and can develop other bespoke workshops tailored to your development objectives. All workshops are delivered on site for the benefit of your leaders, managers, councillors, officers and front line staff.
1: The benefits and application of the entrepreneurial mindset in local government
This half-day workshop introduces the entrepreneurial mindset and its practical relevance to the core services of local government . The workshop is suitable for all staff and can also be tailored to the interests of particular groups.
2: Entrepreneurial leadership in local government
This half-day workshop is for leaders and managers in local government. The emphasis is on the practical application of the entrepreneurial mindset to the key leadership challenges of delivering and transforming services.
Briefings for executive and senior teams
These briefings are a highly effective way of introducing senior staff to the concept of the entrepreneurial mindset and sharing evidence that the entrepreneurial mindset can support KPIs in local government.
Entrepreneurial Health Checks
We support the rigorous self-assessment of the current organisational culture, identifying priorities for putting the mindset into practice and exploring options to be included in the route map to the future organisation.
Through consultancy services we help the development of an entrepreneurial organisational culture that encourages an entrepreneurial mindset in workers, leaders, elected officials and citizens.
