Being Enterprising can be defined as a set of behaviours, attitudes and skills that allow individuals and groups to create positive change through creativity and innovation, cope with, and utilise higher levels of uncertainty and risk than is the norm and show resilience when things don’t go as planned.
Employers value employees who are enterprising for the fresh thinking and attitudes they have and can bring to the company or business.
Being Entrepreneurial involves using enterprising skills to bring that new business idea, venture, product or service to life.
