The EMP Team Workshop Facilitator Kit is a new resource for EMP Certified Practitioners who are working with teams or groups. Specifically designed to be used with the EMP Group Report, this Facilitator Kit has step-by-step instructions and materials for conducting a half-day training session with a team or group of individuals.
The foundation of the EMP Team Workshop is the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile® (EMP), a research-based assessment instrument which looks at 14 scales critical to entrepreneurial success. Since having an “entrepreneurial mindset” is a key factor to generating new business growth, anyone, regardless of age, experience level or type of organization can benefit from developing these skills.
The EMP Team Workshop helps teams identify and leverage their entrepreneurial strengths as well as target areas for development. By exploring how group results compare to norm groups of entrepreneurs and corporate managers, teams can decide which scales need attention and then create action plans to meet their specific objectives and the overall mission of the organization.
This Facilitator Kit provides many benefits, both to the EMP Practitioner conducting the workshop as well as to the actual participants attending the workshop.
- A complete program which can be duplicated exactly or serve as a basic framework upon which to build your own program using the EMP
- A true time saver with content that is fully developed and geared specifically toward teams
- Modules which provide flexibility in content and scheduling
- Ready-to-go exercises, a PowerPoint presentation and additional training materials
- Logistics outline to guide pre- and post-workshop preparation

The EMP Team Workshop Facilitator Kit is a new resource built specifically around the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile® (EMP). We know that creating new training content can be both challenging and time-consuming. This Facilitator Kit offers EMP Certified Practitioners an easy solution to that dilemma as it contains activities and exercises to be used with teams when debriefing an EMP Group Report.
Even though the EMP was developed by looking at what distinguishes entrepreneurs from corporate managers, the assessment’s behaviors and skillsets are critical for all teams in the “VUCA” (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world in which we all now live. And even if a team’s goals aren’t about “entrepreneurial mindset” per se, the instrument’s scales are broadly useful for what teams need to do when creating a vision, executing a plan, persisting for the sake of accomplishing very ambitious goals, etc. For example, school superintendents in a recent program found the EMP very relevant to their leadership team in supporting student achievement even though the word “entrepreneur” never entered their minds.
The Facilitator Kit is available to educators, organizational trainers, individual coaches and consultants who are certified in the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile (EMP). Certified EMP Practitioners can purchase the Facilitator Kit and begin using the materials immediately.
The Facilitator Kit contains an outline for conducting a half-day workshop with teams who have taken the EMP and includes the following:
- Instructions and timeline for preparing for the workshop
- Workshop agenda
- Group exercises and activities which include the Learning Objective, Time Requirement and Process/Description
- Materials for the Entrepreneurial Mindset Quote Cards Exercise
The Facilitator Kit enables teams to examine their EMP results in an effort to become more effective rather than simply providing awareness to individuals. Unlike some assessment tools where higher scores are always considered better or more desirable, the real value in exploring the EMP dimensions comes from examining a particular team’s context:
- What is their function—Sales or Operations?
- What is the industry—Energy or Hospitality?
- What are the current market conditions affecting the team?
- What are the long term plans?
These questions are not only pertinent, but they allow the teams themselves (and the consultants working with them) to fully understand what they’re good at and where they lack skills. In other words, teams can discuss the EMP scales in the context of these issues ahead of time and then cross-reference them later with their actual results. Obviously, it can be very motivating when there is strong alignment.
Since the outline and exercises for the workshop are already fully developed and the Kit comes with guidelines and tips on presenting, all of the materials can be integrated into your training with virtually no design time or effort. Not only does the Kit save you time, but it also enriches participants’ understanding of the EMP.
The Facilitator Kit can be used in conjunction with a variety of different interventions including team development, strategic planning or innovation. You can supplement your existing programming by adding in certain elements, or you can use the entire half-day session as a stand-alone program. In either event, the Kit is an inexpensive way to add value to your current resources.
Consider the cost (in hours) of developing a new format or designing new exercises by yourself versus paying a simple, one-time fee covering a complete, half-day workshop. Both new and seasoned consultants can benefit from adding this Facilitator Kit to their toolbox.
