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.
