Exploring Empower Generations Culture: What’s the ‘E’ in ‘iLEAD’?

Competency Based Learning

Editor’s Note: This is one in a series of articles on the pillars of iLEAD’s educational philosophy and approach. 

“If you work hard enough and assert yourself, and use your mind and imagination, you can shape the world to your desires.” — Malcolm Gladwell

This week, we’re exploring the third pillar of the iLEAD acronym: the letter E, which stands for Entrepreneurial Development.

At Empower Generations, we encourage learners to work in teams, take risks, and learn from failure — all of which nurture the ability to innovate and ignite the entrepreneurial spirit.

Through focusing on entrepreneurial development, learners build a number of skills, including the following: 

  • Self-confidence
  • Durability and resilience
  • Problem-solving
  • Creativity and innovative thinking
  • Goal-setting
  • Initiative
  • A strong work ethic

Next week, join us as we dive into the next pillar of the iLEAD acronym: Arts.
