FAQ

What is the EMP Team Workshop Facilitator Kit?

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.

Why is the EMP useful with teams?

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.

Who can use the Facilitator Kit?

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.

What’s in the Facilitator Kit?

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
    PowerPoint Presentation

What is the advantage of using the Facilitator Kit?

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.

How can I use the Facilitator Kit?

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.

How do I purchase the Facilitator Kit?

If you are already an EMP Certified Practitioner, you can purchase the Facilitator Kit by submitting an online order form.
If you are applying to become an EMP Certified Practitioner, you will enjoy a $25 discount by bundling your certification registration fee with the Kit.

How much does the Facilitator Kit cost?

The cost of the Facilitator Kit is $125 for existing EMP Practitioners. For certification applicants bundling the Kit with their registration, the cost is $100.

What else should I consider before purchasing the Facilitator Kit?

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.
