One of the main
objectives of this program is to help each participant
identify the arenas he or she has responsibility
for or control over in the entrepreneurial process.
We spend 75% of
the time understanding each individual internal world,
getting a better understanding of strengths and vulnerabilities. 25% of the time is
then spent looking outward, understanding the way each participant
interacts with the people around them.
