SquareUp: Entrepreneurial Thinking for Career Success Pt.1

Self Discovery & The Entrepreneurship Mindset

What do current employers need in their workforce? The 21st century skills of critical thinking/problem solving, collaboration, creativity, and diversity top the list. SquareUp modules described below blend each of these essential skills with relevant real life case studies and a nonlinear approach to career development.

Course Modules

Self Discovery

In this module, learners explore their unique strengths and weaknesses by clarifying personal attributes through self-awareness. The learner creates a resume-ready personal positioning statement and other powerful tools tailored to each individual. Learners focus on clear thinking and effective communication as problem-solving tools to overcome challenges in their post-incarceration lives.

Entrepreneurial Mindset

Entrepreneurship is more than starting a business. It’s a way of thinking, daring, and dreaming to try more, build more, and be more. This module clarifies the differences between business management and true entrepreneurship while isolating three core personal attributes of entrepreneurial thinking. Creating short and long-term goals allows the learner to embrace the deep parallels between entrepreneurial thinking and personal development. These sessions provide a foundation for sound reasoning and problem-solving skills, essential to both professional and personal success.
