Event description

Description

We are pleased to announce the first iteration of our social enterprise capacity building workshop series designed for organizations either developing or scaling their social enterprise. These workshops have been developed to address a number of key challenges organizations face as they build and scale their social ventures:


1. You: Key Mindsets and Key Mindset Techniques Workshop: 8:30- noon March 27, 2019 @ the Trico Charitable Foundation

This event registration is combined with the below ‘Your Idea’ session as attendance is required at both these events in order to take part in the later ‘Your Actions’ team sessions. More info here.

What: This session corresponds with our Key Mindsets blog. Drawing on a wide-range resources that focus on the importance of self-mastery, even on a journey of service and collaboration, it focuses on the attitudes you will need, and tips on what do in difficult times, as you further your social enterprise initiative – in general and in utilizing the other workshops. It will flag for you a number of cognitive biases that can prove to be a road block for social enterprises and provide tools to overcome your blind spots. These techniques were discussed by one of our summer students in “Owning My Journey: Developing Entrepreneurial Mindsets.“

Who: This session has been designed for anyone who is looking to develop their skills as they build or scale their social enterprise. Team participation is encouraged but not required.


2. Your Idea: Customer/ Beneficiary Distinction and Blending the Social & Entrepreneurial: 8:30- noon March 29, 2019 @ the Trico Charitable Foundation

This event registration is combined with the above ‘You’ session as attendance is required at both these events in order to take part in the ‘Your Actions’ team sessions. More info here.

What: This session introduces you to how the Trico Foundation team understands social entrepreneurship, takes you through the process of differentiating between your customers and beneficiaries, and introduces you to our Blender canvas which explores how the social and entrepreneurial aspects in your social enterprise model interact. Additionally, we will discuss the upcoming ‘Your Actions’ workshops and a number of resources that are available to you as you move forward on your social enterprise journey.

Who: This session has been designed for anyone who is looking to build their social enterprise knowledge, dig into their own model, and explore the resources available. Team participation is encouraged but not required.

**If you plan on attending both sessions, you must register for these workshops separately using the above 'Select A Date' drop-down menu**
