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…)

I’M HERE

Where am I? Sometimes I don’t even know. This year has started in such a hurry that it was already the middle of September when I realized I still hadn’t written the post that starts this new era. The point is that, sometimes, life doesn’t adapt to your plans and you have to be veeeery flexible, more than what you’d like. That’s what happened to me: I had to re-prioritize. But here I am, looking forward to writing about one of the topics that I like most and which I’m very excited about. I don’t have to tell you which one it is, right? (more…)

What if I can’t get out?

Today’s post is a medley of words among which I want to highlight the following ones: escapism, bus, ideas, time, entrepreneurship, young people, trust, SDGs, fun, talent, challenges, solutions, creativity, innovation, help, funding, city halls, the council of Bizkaia, Puebla (Mexico), BIGEL and, of course, PEOPLE. Because today’s post has its origin in a re-encounter with an E.P. who I met more than a year ago. Do you want to know who I’m talking about and why I’m writing this post? I invite you to keep reading. (more…)

May the entrepreneurial spirit be with us

This week I’ve been in some acts that have reminded me how important the entrepreneurial spirit is in our day to day to move forward, to change if necessary, to achieve what we want, to make a difference and to make our dreams come true.

That’s why today I bring you some thoughts about the so-called entrepreneurial spirit and what it helps us to achieve, if we “put our foot into it”.

Have you ever thought about what the entrepreneurial spirit is?

I admit that it is the first time that I think carefully on it. But it is not the first time I refer to it when I talk about entrepreneurship and the person, indeed.

The fact is that this weekend I started thinking about how we could define the so-called entrepreneurial spirit, which, I assure you, is something fundamental for the entrepreneur. Will you accompany me?
