ENTREPRENEURSHIP & LEADERSHIP COURSE
After meeting with a business coach you may be selected to join the Hobby2Enterprise entrepreneurship and leadership course. If selected you will join a cohort of passionate entrepreneurs that come together on a monthly basis to network, attend panels of established entrepreneurs and learn from engaging hands-on workshops led by Scarabys Consulting. These workshops will provide you with a working knowledge base in social entrepreneurship, leadership, and social capital development.
Combining theory and application, participants will learn to use these skills to build and refine their work, personal, and team development toward a self-determined vision for success. Panels will bring in real world practitioners in the field, while workshop sessions will include hands-on individual, partner, and group activities to clarify thinking, build skills and strategies, and meaningfully grow the social networks of participants.
