The benefits of the entrepreneurial mindset

Benefits of the Mindset for Individuals

The right mindset will help you not just to cope with all the changes life throws at you, but to be strong, to thrive and to build a path towards the best possible version of your life. It empowers and energises you, it keeps you realistic and determined. Without the mindset you will definitely miss out and struggle to see the way ahead. The mindset keeps your motivation high, even in difficult times. It makes you resilient; you say to yourself “despite all the obstacles, how do I make this happen?”  The entrepreneurial mindset will help you to achieve your goals in life and your career, and to make your unique contribution to the world.

Benefits of the Mindset for Organisations

The entrepreneurial mindset can make sure that an organsiation gets the very best from each of its employees. Leaders and managers can use the mindset to release all the untapped human potential in their organisations, by empowering employees, encouraging and rewarding them to innovate, take risks and act in the interests of customers. Innovation is enhanced when more employees are empowered, when there is greater diversity, inclusivity and equity. Employees with the right mindset transform the organisation with their can-do attitude. In turn, this enables organisations to succeed with significant, large scale and transformational change.

Benefits of the Mindset for Society

Society is improved by having more people who feel empowered to take action about societal issues. It makes a difference when individuals choose to try and make their own contribution to societal problems. The entrepreneurial mindset can help each of us to see our place in the larger system and the part we can play. As individuals we can't solve the really big problems by ourselves but we can find and collaborate with other people who share the same desire to make a difference. When each of us asks “I think this change is important so how do I make it happen?” we can all find the part we can play in addressing societal and global issues, including the Sustainable Development Goals as agreed by the United Nations General Assembly.
