Susan Taylor's curator insight, November 20, 2013 5:05 PM

One of the fastest growing studies in both the US and the UK is the study of entrepreneurship.  And as Entrepreneurship Week is celebrated globally, Michelle Wright poses an interesting question: Can any child grow up to be an entrepreneur?

 

Still cynical about whether entrepreneurship can be taught, Ms. Wright agrees that every undergraduate should have the opportunity to learn how to set up and own a business.  Yet there is a fundamental difference between teaching students how to set up a company vs. the sensitivities it takes to run it. 

 

"The key skills of sparking somebody’s imagination of creativity, boldness and the desire to take risks, are instincts."  So it stands to reason that some people are are more suited to be entrepreneurs than others. 

 

In Wright's view, perhaps it is then the question itself that needs to be rephrased.  Instead of asking ‘can entrepreneurship be taught’, we should instead be questioning whether its principles and concepts be applied to the real world.

Creativity is essential as a skill for this century.

Rachelle Wooten's curator insight, March 26, 2013 11:25 AM

If there is one area where we could really use some creativity is in the area of PD! I could really appreciate this quote, "Spurts of time riddled with interruptions aren’t conducive to creativity because each time our focus is wrecked, we struggle to get back to the point we’d reached in our creative “flow”." Time is always an issue but it's so necessary to creativity.

From the Article:  You do not need to “be seen” before pursuing your ideas. Enjoy yourself. Work. Create. Add value. Do what you can, consider everything an experiment to be held lightly, and then see what it leads to. Trust that in the doing, you are learning and growing, and being powerful. While it is quite possible you will be left “unseen” by some of society, at least you’ll see yourself. In this way, power stretches to become dignity.
