Transforming your Organization with an Entrepreneurial Mindset

Everyone wants to be involved in work that matters. When employees have an entrepreneurial mindset, they can see the purpose. They begin to take ownership and become self-directed. They begin to see opportunities where others see none and find ways to create value by solving problems for their organization and those it serves. Join Gary Schoeniger along with facilitators Tricia Teague and Audrey Wyatt as they discuss the power of an entrepreneurial mindset in the workplace.

Taking Risks

Risk Versus Reward: The Hidden Strategy of Unlikely Entrepreneurs

In the next installment of our series "How to Think (and Act) Like an Entrepreneur," Gary Schoeniger writes about how entrepreneurs handle risk and turn their obstacles into opportunities. 

"Perhaps the most powerful lessons to be learned from the unlikely entrepreneur is the willingness to act on an idea, using a ready-fire-aim approach. By doing so, we can minimize the risks while also reaping the rewards."
