St. Louis region's network for OD professionals.
In business environments how leaders think is as important as what they do and employers are seeking talent who can foster innovation. However, the entrepreneurial mindset isn't always the right fit for an organization's culture. We'll explore what the entrepreneurial mindset is and how to support those brought into the organization to think and act this way.
OD practitioners are working alongside individuals and organizations that recognize the struggle for talent in today's post-pandemic world. As we work to coach and create environments that support innovative and creative solutions, we will discuss the prevailing thoughts from MIT, Babson, and other practitioners and learn how cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset can become a competitive advantage.
