1.1 Entrepreneurial mind-set and sense of initiative

Module 1 is about Engaging students through entrepreneurship education

First question to reflect on: 

What does an entrepreneurial mind-set consist of? What are the skills and attitudes that you can think of.

my answer

"The sense of initiative and entrepreneurship is the ability to turn ideas into action through creativity,innovation, and risk-taking as well as the ability to plan and manage projects.
In other words, entrepreneurial learning, as seen in this course, is not about preparing the next business leaders of our society, but is about nurturing open- minded, creative thinkers. It’s a mind-set which would allow pupils to approach every opportunity, goal or challenges with the same curiosity and creativity, regardless of the context, subject, and situation."

Reflecting on the skills needed, I find it more and more complicated to define them, analyse them. What about self-confidence, perseverance, resilience? They are not skills but internal abilities and together with skills they are more or less interconnected and they need as a basis an already gained general growth mindset.
