Have you ever thought of starting your own company? Are you already there and need some inspiration and motivation? Are you a leader in an organization that needs to think more entrepreneurial? Host Jeff Smith and Jay Markiewicz, Executive Director of Entrepreneurship Programs at Virginia Commonwealth University will be talking about their leadership journey and sharing lessons learned from their journey. They will also be sharing best practices from coaching, teaching and working with entrepreneurs. Jay will be sharing a model called the Entrepreneurship Journey during the show. Success in the entrepreneurship journey is driven by three domains; Human Story, Mindset, and Set of Activities. Where these three domains intersect is the entrepreneur's (Leader's) unique value contribution (UVC). The job of the entrepreneur (leader) is to navigate and align these domains in order to live their very own Unique Value Contribution (UVC). Please join on Voltcast: Illuminating Leadership.
