Using the EMP with Corporate Teams and Small Businesses
Join us in this virtual forum exclusively for Certified Practitioners of the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile® (EMP) as we focus primarily on using the EMP with corporate teams and small businesses. This free 90-minute Zoom event will be moderated by EMP co-author Pam Mayer as well as EMP Master Trainers Vicki Main and Lisa Smith, our partners from Blow Your Own Mind® (BYOM) in Australia.
Many of you know that the EMP can be used in training and coaching, but did you realize that it is also a productive tool for organizational development? EMP Co-author Pam Mayer will discuss with actual clients how teams can use their individual and group capacities in entrepreneurial mindset to address innovation challenges and formulate corporate strategies.
In the second part of the forum, EMP Master Trainers Lisa Smith and Vicki Main from Blow Your Own Mind® (BYOM) will review how small business owners in the PIVOT program leveraged their EMP results to cultivate innovation, develop new opportunities for their businesses and build resilience for long-term success.
A few minutes of Q&A will follow each part of the forum with an additional 30-minutes available at the end for optional discussion with our speakers and your fellow Practitioners.
