The purpose of this subject is to help students develop the personal insights, ethical decision-making skills and interpersonal capabilities that will be critical to being a successful entrepreneur. The subject will look at four interrelated cognitive and emotional domains. First, self understanding, which will address where being an Entrepreneur fits into the student’s life/career; what strengths they bring; what the particular challenges will be for them and how to set up and use opportunities for reflective learning. Second, self management skills, which will focus on those which are especially important for entrepreneurs including: the resilience skills to handle pressure and failure, time and priority management skills, and the skills to manage success. Third, ethical decision making, which will explore a person’s values, different methods of making ethical decisions, the identification and management of cognitive biases and the application of ethical decision making skills to the type of concrete dilemma’s faced by entrepreneurs. Finally, skills to manage others and your network. Key elements addressed include: the insight into others needed to help build effective teams and how to manage team dynamics, approaches to influencing/motivating others, the mindsets and skills required for delegation and capabilities needed for effective leadership.
