I asked you to produce a short action plan identifying actual steps you could take to put your plan into action. Your plan should identify how you would overcome the major barriers, what you would actually do, who you would speak with, what further information you might need, the timescale for this for this.
Now some of you will present a brief summary of your action plan and we will then see if the action plan is realistic. We will act as critical friends
How do we really know how good we are at those things? Work in 3s on your skills audit to clarify, question and expand. One person at a time.
The other two people take on different roles; one acts as a positive constructive friend, the other one plays a role of devil’s advocate or slightly negative critic e.g. Asks the questions “how do you know?”, “what evidence do you have?”, “give me an example off that”.
Before session 5 – so you have 3 weeks to do this Interview of an enterprising person – someone who has set up their own business recently for the first time. If you don't know anyone in this situation then you will have to enterprising yourself and go find someone – it’s important that you do this exercise.
The aim of the interview is not to find out about the person's business but to find out about the person and to find out how they feel that life has changed in moving from their previous employment or unemployment to being self-employed. See handout.
And you should try and find out from your perspective and, without asking specific asking questions about this. What are the enterprising/entrepreneurial values/attitudes/characteristics which they personally display? And what are the enterprising/entrepreneurial values/attitudes/characteristics which their business displays?
