What we do for Future Business Leaders – Student level

Young Lions – High School and Tertiary level students

Over 80% of our business leaders currently fall into what we call “the failing slowly category”. Research across New Zealand, South Africa and Australia tells us that 9 out of every 10 entrepreneur who starts out will eventually give up.

At EnQPractice we believe that there is something inherently wrong with the way that our education system is preparing our future business leaders – and we are turning this around with our Path of the Lion workshops for Young Lions.

Why should we work with EnQPractice to turn this around for our students?
Here is why:

  • We offer a 2 full (school day) or 4 half day format workshop to students to develop their EnQ. These formats are available for schools to run in-house, or as a host school to students from their school as well as other schools. Our workshops are both time affordable and cost affordable.
  • We work with our students to set the foundation they will need to develop traits critical to successful entrepreneurship such as resilience, drive, commitment and focus before they take their first entrepreneurial step or choose a career path.
  • “One size does not fit all”. As individuals we are all different and therefore we need to take our uniqueness into account along our learning path. This is effectively done in Path of the Lion in the “4 Entrepreneurial Species” section of the book and workshop. The species analogies which make the entrepreneurial environment simple to understand, is used throughout the Path of the Lion, with an assessment available online, for those who attend a workshop.
  • We teach students how to structure the right people around them, as they will need to leverage way above their capacity as an individual to build a profitable business.
  • Path of the Lion takes the complexity out of the business environment and teaches students how to navigate a world of change – they will need this as it is estimated that over 60% of those leaving school today will be working in industries in the next 10 years that don’t currently exist.
  • Our workshops are structured to anchor the critical learning with challenging and interactive activities.

Students – you can develop your EnQ in one of 3 ways:

  • Contact us at info@enqpractice.com to find out how to enrol in a workshop in your area
  • Go straight to the Products Page and order your own Path of the Lion hard copy or e-Book (2nd Edition)
  • Have a look at our Facilitators Page and contact the closest one to you to have a chat about how we can help you.

But don’t just take our word for it…

Feedback comments:

Sandy has set the scene for entrepreneurial development at our school. We introduced the concept of Entrepreneurial Intelligence (ENQ) to 160 Grade 9 students and had amazing feedback. We are now inundated with boys that want to take the subject at school and they are door knocking regularly to pitch their business ideas to us. I can highly recommend this course to any school that wants to plant the entrepreneurial seed and focus on turning students into job creators rather than job seekers.”

I loved the EnQ Workshop. I have really enjoyed learning about different leadership styles and ways to communicate with contrasting personalities. I have so  enjoyed gaining lots of new knowledge around entrepreneurship. The experience has been so enlightening. Thank you so much for a really great course.”

This course was fun, educational, motivating and really inspiring. Sandy provided a 2 day course that was fully relatable to NZ’s young business venturers, planning to progress in their entrepreneurial skills and strengths.”

The one word used most frequently to describe the Path of the Lion Workshop experience for our students was “life-changing.”

Steve Aldhamland,  St Andrews College, Christ Church

The value of the training provided for the course fee is incredible. Sandy has taught our students skills that they would have to pay enormous fees for in a corporate training environment. And these skills come at a critical time of their lives when they are making big choices. I cannot recommend the EnQ learning highly enough and our students have absolutely loved it.”
