Drive workplace engagement and innovation with an entrepreneurial mindset



Gallup reports that 87% of employees around the world are not engaged in their work. Nearly one in four employees are actively disengaged, working against the mission of the organization. Yet, nearly all humans want to be engaged in work that matters. The difference between those who will flourish and those who languish in the workplace is mindset.


An entrepreneurial mindset isn’t just for entrepreneurs. And, an entrepreneurial mindset can be developed and enhanced through entrepreneurial learning experiences within organizations. When employees have an entrepreneurial mindset, their work matters and they are driven by purpose. They begin to take ownership and become self-directed. They begin to see opportunities where others see none and find ways to create value by solving problems. By cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset in organizations, we can empower and engage employees.


Organizations offer the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program as a learning and development program to develop the entrepreneurial mindset in their leaders and employees.


Participants will consume video content, discuss and apply core concepts, engage in the entrepreneurial process, and reflect individually. As a result, participants will become more empowered and engaged by:

  • Developing entrepreneurial attitudes, behaviors, and skills
  • Identifying social and situational factors that encourage or inhibit entrepreneurial behavior
  • Identifying, evaluating, and validating opportunities in ambiguous, real-world circumstances
  • Identifying and interacting with entrepreneurs who provide critical guidance and ongoing support


Best practice to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset in your organization is to:

  • Engage stakeholders with an ELI keynote and/or workshop;
  • Assess your entrepreneurial culture to identify gaps;
  • Establish your desired outcomes and evaluation tools to measure success;
  • Select key employees to become Ice House Certified Facilitators;
  • Implement the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program across your organization; and
  • Assess data and establish strengths and opportunities for improvement for the future.
