Indicators of an entrepreneurial spirit

Indicators of an entrepreneurial spirit
  1. In-tune with your own passion. When people are genuinely passionate about the problems that your company is trying to solve, they will be energized by any challenge that stands in their way.
  2. Always questioning how it can be done better. The average person rarely considers how ordinary things can be made better or improved--those with the entrepreneurial spirit can't help themselves.
  3. Optimistic about all possibilities. They don't spend time thinking about what they can't do, but instead ask themselves, "Why can't I?"
  4. Taking calculated risks. They make calculated moves while understanding that there are never any guarantees of success.
  5. Above all, execution. They realize that execution is everything when it comes down to success or failure.

  1. Get Passionate. This is the key to career success and fulfillment in any field.
  2. Be Bothered by Inefficiency. Consider whether there are places you could implement solutions (or at least recommend improvements).
  3. Take on More Risk. More risk, more reward.” At work, start small by pitching new ideas or volunteering to take on a challenge or two that’s outside of your comfort zone.
  4. Brainstorm More. Constant innovation is crucial to a business’ long-term success. Schedule some time each week to really brainstorm about something that’s been on your mind. See what you come up with.
  5. Don’t Limit Your Dreams. Many people are conditioned to be realistic and practical. Rather dream big for your career.

IDEAS

If you as the manager continually demonstrate that you are comfortable being challenged, or yielding your idea to a superior one suggested by a colleague or subordinate, everyone who works for you will emulate that behavior

If you dismiss challenges or yell at people who challenge you, the culture of fear your behavior creates will dominate no matter who you hire or how great you proclaim it is to challenge assumptions.

Focus on What You Can Control

Worrying about the result is a distraction from what you really should be thinking about: how you can respond, and what happens next.

Your work leaves your hands at some point and what happens next is almost always out of your control. People either like your work of art or they don’t.
