AvoLead Announces the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile™





Avolead LLC is pleased to introduce the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile™ (EMP) self-report tool. AvoLead Client Engagement Director, Jennifer Hall, Ph.D., co-authored the instrument, which was developed by the Leadership Development Institute at Eckerd College. Read more about Dr. Hall here.

Based on extensive research, the EMP is designed to help corporate leaders, students and entrepreneurs assess the degree to which they are utilizing an “entrepreneurial mindset.” The tool measures 14 scales, assessing personality characteristics and motivations, as well as cognitive and behavioral skills critical to entrepreneurial success. The EMP provides a feedback report and a thorough Development Guide that includes interpretive material about each of the 14 scales, suggestions for development, recommended resources and action planning guidelines.

Learn more about the EMP and how AvoLead consultants can help your employees make the most of their entrepreneurial capacity.
