It’s All About the Mindset

The EMP is a cutting-edge tool to assess your mindset and help you unlock your entrepreneurial potential.

About The EMP

In today’s complex business environment, organizations need to make profound shifts in order to stay competitive. Those who want to make a mark on the world need to ask themselves some tough questions.

College Students

Are you fully leveraging your unique strengths and talents in a way that enhances your chances for professional success?

Corporate Leaders

What should you be doing to help your teams and organizations grow and stay ahead of the competition?


Are you balancing risk and reward—and strategy and execution—in pursuit of high-potential opportunities?

Having this “entrepreneurial mindset” is essential to sustaining growth and innovation.

Developed by the Leadership Development Institute (LDI) at Eckerd College, the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile (EMP) is an empirically-based, cutting-edge assessment tool based on extensive research into the traits, motivations and skills of entrepreneurs. Available in self-report and team report formats, the EMP can help leaders and individual contributors alike assess the degree to which their teams are utilizing an “entrepreneurial mindset.”

LDI offers customized programs using the EMP to address specific needs. The EMP can be incorporated into programs designed to assess and promote competencies such as innovation, creativity and growth leadership. Alternately, it can be used to benchmark a team’s entrepreneurial capacity prior to the design of a program, so that the program can accurately target the team’s specific opportunities for development.
