The Enterprise Journey explained

CAP exists to help people and organisations become more enterprising, more can-do and more independent - to go on an enterprise journey and to develop enterprising traits. We're often asked why we do this, by people that think we simply want to create business-savvy, commercially-minded people.

For us our work is simple - to equip our clients with the tools and attributes to break down barriers, to make positive change and to achieve their personal and professional goals.

So what do we actually mean by 'becoming more enterprising'?

Well, here are a few of the traits present in the people we support through our programmes:

  1. Initiative: They're proactive and take the lead in seeking out opportunities. They're not afraid to act on their own ideas.

  2. Risk-taking: They're comfortable with taking calculated risks and understand that failure is often a part of the process.

  3. Creativity: They're innovative and think outside the box. They often come up with unique solutions to problems.

  4. Persistence: They're resilient and persistent in pursuing their goals, even in the face of setbacks or obstacles.

  5. Vision: They have a clear vision of what they want to achieve and are able to set goals accordingly.

  6. Adaptability: They're flexible and adaptable to changing circumstances, adjusting their strategies as needed.

  7. Networking skills: They're adept at building relationships and networking, which helps them to seize opportunities and collaborate effectively.

  8. Leadership: They often have strong leadership qualities, inspiring and motivating others to follow their vision.

  9. Decision-making: They're decisive and can make quick, informed decisions when necessary.

  10. Financial acumen: They have a good understanding of financial matters, including budgeting, investing, and managing resources effectively.

These traits collectively enable an enterprising individual to identify opportunities, take action, and navigate challenges in the pursuit of their goals.

Just imagine how powerful a community, charity, social enterprise or business could be with enterprising and motivated people like this playing a key role......pretty potent eh?
