We work on mindset training
MindsetEntrepreneurship is a state of mind and the related attitudes can be trained. That is why THE ORANGE OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP methodology has been created: to give awarness about the importance of using everyday, in any kind of job, the entrepreneurial mindset. We currently deliver courses on this topic in schools, universities, incubators and private companies. They can be attended by students, teachers, employees, start-uppers and aspiring entrepreneurs.
What it isThe Orange of Entrepreneurship© is an experiential training aimed to rediscover the potential of enterprise production that everyone has: the teachers work together with the participants to develop their entrepreneurial mindset through reflection on the importance of the characteristics that over the centuries have distinguished entrepreneurs and training them. It is a process of introspection, discovery and awareness of entrepreneurial attitudes and it introduces a number of techniques and exercises, providing participants with the tools to strengthen these attitudes at any time of their lives.
BasisIn recent years, cognitive psychologists who have studied the traits that characterize the entrepreneurs, (from the ability to recognize the opportunities to find creative ideas for solving problems), argue that the formation of personal attitudes is through external factors, namely through a process of external influence. This means that the entrepreneurial mindset is not an innate characteristic, but on the contrary can be learned and trained.
OutcomesTraining can therefore play a crucial role not only in providing "knowledge" but also in providing those stimuli to train the attitudes connected proactivity, initiative, courage, commitment, resilience, motivation, that lead to have that special mentality that is able to transform ideas into actions, visions into something real: entrepreneurship.
DefinitionEntrepreneurship does not mean only the opening of new companies, but we intend it as a broader concept related to the behaviors that characterize entrepreneurial actions and that can be learned and adapted in all spheres of life. The European Union defines this concept as "an individual's ability to turn ideas into action" and it includes "creativity, innovation, risk-taking, ability to plan and manage projects to achieve goals."
