The keys of a good leadership, also for entrepreneurs

In the school year of 1993-94, as soon as I finished the Pedagogy studies and I got a diploma in Education of Leisure, I applied for the Young Leaders Fellowship scholarship of the Ryoichi Sasakawa Foundation. The goal was to make a research project that allowed me to lay the foundation of what my future doctoral thesis would be while I started working at the Leisure Studies Institute of the University of Deusto, founded in 1988 in the heart of the then Faculty of Philosophy and Education Science. Then started a long journey that’s still going, which I’m very aware of, and that made me work today at the Faculty of Psychology and Education of the University of Deusto, developing at least two of my biggest passions: teaching, with everything that implies; and the promotion of entrepreneurship, the entrepreneurial person – especially the teacherpreneur – and their training.

Do not worried, today’s post is not about my story, it is about leadership. Do you want to keep reading? You don’t? Then you’ll miss something; you do? Keep reading. (more…)

Tell me more. Vertellis

A few months ago, I saw a product on Instagram that I really liked. The first thing it reminded me of was the product and philosophy of the entrepreneurs you know I admire: kietoparao; so, as you can imagine, this post is related to the use and abuse of technologies, or it isn’t? Wait a moment, I should say that this post is related to people, communication, enjoyment and human relationships instead of technologies.

Teacherpreneurs in Sundsvall

An intensive week to delve a little bit more into the entrepreneurial education and learning new methodologies and ways of being more teacherpreneurs. That’s what 13 people of the Primary Education degree of the Psychology and Education Faculty of the University of Deusto have been doing during the past week (from the 21st to the 25th of October) at the Mid Sweden University in Sundsvall (Sweden).

Do you want to know a little bit more about this experience? Keep reading because I’m going to tell you. (more…)

GAPTAIN launches Segureskola

Some months ago, Cristina Sal Salvador del Valle, who is responsible for the social impact at the BBK Foundation and is my fellow sufferer in this thing called entrepreneurship, got in touch with me to see if I could make an ad hoc mentoring session for a project in education to strengthen certain issues.  You can imagine that it didn’t take too long for me to say yes, of course. The day chosen for the mentoring, the 4th of June 2019, which, by the way, is a very important date for me, started this adventure. Roberto Álvarez was there, the founder and CEO of a company that “soon” would become an ally in the great adventure that is entrepreneurship, education and digital competence.

Here starts today’s post that, honestly, gives me good feelings and memories, and makes me want to join forces to do my small part in a topic that worries me more every day. I encourage you to know Gaptain.

Sofro-what? SofroBilbao

The other day I told you that I was going to introduce you to a woman who knew how to adapt to the circumstances and to re-create herself, or maybe I should say benefit from the opportunities life and her profession have given her to start new paths. I’m also going to talk about “something” that at least I didn’t know before this summer when I had the opportunity to spend a pleasant time with her.

Our protagonist of today is Angéline Danel and “my” discovery is the sophrology. Do you want to know more? Keep reading. (more…)
