Entrepreneurship at Home and School – The Learning Success Plan
What is a Learning Success Plan? It was developed by Pat Cooley – technology entrepreneur and member of Entrepreneurs Organization. Pat generously agreed to share his one-page system for tracking his kids’ academic performance and goals. He calls it their “Learning Success Plan.” It has three major components:
a. His child’s current classes, and grades in each class.
b. The key success factor (one for each class) to maintain or improve their grade.
c. An overall goal, such as “I want to watch Monday night football” or “I want to earn my parents’ respect and trust so I can travel abroad.” This statement is the motivation for achieving their goals and getting good grades.
This chart might be helpful and interesting for:
1. Entrepreneurship beginners – the Learning Success Plan is a great example of entrepreneurial traits (something that may not be 100% familiar) to a home and school setting (something that is 100% familiar).
2. For advanced educators, students, and entrepreneurs – the Learning Success Plan is a great example of how to apply entrepreneurial systems outside of the workplace.
Entrepreneurial thinking is everywhere, and this is another example.
