About this Event

Join the WE-CAN community of women entrepreneurs in an experiential-based workshop to learn how to develop a business growth mindset.

Have you ever considered the role of your own mindset as it relates to the growth of your business?

In business, we are often taught to focus on actions to get the desired results, but there are more elements that could affect our action results.

Designed based on Business and Systems Coaching techniques suitable for experiential learning, this webinar introduces participants to the following chain: Thoughts > Feeling > Actions > Results.

The workshop also explores the notion of the power of positive inner communication which is often overlooked in a business environment that constantly demands our attention, and bombards us with information and negative news.

In this workshop, participants will gain:

  • Increased awareness about how your own mindset (thoughts, beliefs, attitudes)—not only your actions—affects your business growth
  • Strategies to build and maintain a successful mindset despite the entrepreneurship challenges
  • Better understanding of the untapped inner potential to drive positive change in yourself and your business

Participants are encouraged to take part in interactive and experiential exercises to identify their own definition of success and the mindset shifts required to build it.

Using real-life scenarios relevant to their business, attendees will become more aware of how their own mindset (not just their actions) can affect their business growth. They will leave with a customized plan based on their specific situation.

Unlike informational webinars, the experiential learning format of this webinar has both a short- and long-term impact on participants.

Live Zoom transcription will be enabled during this event. Please contact Kerry Ramsay at  kerry.ramsay@queensu.ca if you have accessibility requirements as soon as possible as advance notice is necessary to arrange for some accessibility needs.
