About the Event
Just what does an entrepreneurial mindset look like? How do you go about developing one, and why is it important that you do? Competition is only getting stronger nowadays and the way to successfully compete is evolving. In the past, logical and linear thinking were in high demand....but that's changing. Now, inventive and conceptual thinking are fast becoming sought after as a way to compete in the Information Age.
In this workshop, participants will explore the six essential aptitudes (Design, Story, Symphony, Empathy, Play and Meaning) that Daniel Pink highlights as critical for personal and professional success. Come join us to learn more!!
