2. Link lessons to projects.
One of the keys to teaching entrepreneurship, and many other subjects, is project-based learning. That’s learning by doing and applying lessons to long-term, long-range projects. It’s a great way to teach your team members and allow them to learn.
Better yet, make those projects real — things that really benefit your business. People remember what they do far longer than what someone tells them, no matter how inspirational the message. “You can spend all the time in the world in a classroom, but it really connects when you use your skills on real tasks,” says Phil Tadros, entrepreneurial founder of Doejo. “Now, more than ever, companies want to see experience on a resume. That’s why business schools are changing everything. Tying hands-on projects into education is what entrepreneurs need.”
