We are following up with Kenneth Friedel, the founder of Purple Crayon Enterprises as continue to explore entrepreneurial resiliency. Ken is a consultant, master facilitator and trainer. As a certified trainer and facilitator, Ken works with leaders and staff to realize their best-self and enable cultures to thrive during change, conflict, and strategy implementation.
What is entrepreneurial resiliency? Why is important to an entrepreneur? And How to do develop it in yourself as an entrepreneur and in your business team? That’s just a few of things we learn in the this podcast and the next one, as we have a lot of material to cover, so we did two podcasts on this topic.
Entrepreneurial resiliency is the ability to manage conflict constructively. If you have trouble finding the time to work on your business, rather than in your business and find that managing self care is a problem, then this podcast is for you. Resiliency as an entrepreneur is being aware of what you control, finding the gap in any conflict (between what you control, and what others control) and then managing that conflict for constructive outcomes. Ken describes this a difference between where you are and where you want to be.
Ken further discusses that resiliency is the self-care needed to manage the tension and conflict by first recognizing feelings and determine what you want to happen from any set of feelings.
There is a process model for this that was developed by Next Element Consulting and for which Ken is a trained facilitor. The model is first being open to change. Then understanding the problem solving that comes from being resourceful , being perceptive to conflict and then coming back to being open again. This is a great interview, you will want to listen to both parts. You can reach Ken, via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
