Entrepreneurs are known risk-takers who seek ways of disrupting business-as-usual practices. They are endowed with characteristics that allow them to modify the environment and they possess traits that give them personal competitive advantages. They have vision, are risk tolerant, yet seek to avoid it.
They are explores whose passion and perseverance allow them to manage resources and design pathways to success, while they minimize risk along the way. Though their ventures will sometimes fail, they are quick to pick up again. They trust their instincts, they work through intuition, and they continually evaluate self-identify. Yet, there is still much to learn.
Join this Entrepreneurial Leadership workshop to learn new ways to develop your strengths. Highly engaging. Bring your lunch! Leave when you need to.
People use the term “thought leader” as if all you have to do to become one is set up a Twitter account and start tweeting. This is hardly the case. True thought leaders have expertise, passion, and a track record of changing the world. They become thought leaders when they rise above themselves by sharing their knowledge so that others can change the world, too. Perhaps most importantly, they are recognized by their peers — they do not declare themselves. It is only through a sincere commitment to share the path forward to a better future that they earn the right to be called a thought leader.
