Develop your Intrapreneurial Skills


Published on 07/01/2014

Program Overview:

The 'Develop your Intrapreneurial Skills' program is a 1-day Masterclass or 4-week Online Course, focused at getting you thinking and behaving like a successful 'intrapreneur' in no time. 

In this course, you will discover why business leaders from around the world, from successful companies like 3M, Google, Toyota, Sony and Apple are choosing this style of management and business leadership, over conventional management methods, to build their team into successful intrapreneurs, for the benefit of the company as a whole. 

Are you ready to think like an enterprising individual, and adopt the mindset, behaviour, and habits of an entrepreneur, but within the organisation you work for ?  

Do you want to explore your entrepreneurial potential and learn effective ways to share your ideas to your employer or team ?

Do you wish to play a part in building an entrepreneurial culture within your workplace environment ?

Are you keen to transform your creative ideas into innovative / commercially viable products or services, to increase the competitiveness of the company you work for ?

If you're a business leaderCEOmanagerbusiness owner, or an employee of a small, medium or large organisation, then 'intrapreneurship' may be the perfect ingredient for your career and personal development.  

What is intrapreneurship ?

Intrapreneurship allows for innovative progress and development to occur in a speedier way within an organisation. 

 

The key advantage of intrapreneurship is that the intrapreneur (or employee of an organisation) can leverage on the support and resources of the organisation itself, that would otherwise not be available if that person was an entrepreneur working on their own business venture.

 

The role of an intrapreneur is more than just thinking outside the box or having a good idea. Intrapreneurs should also engage in operational work which leads to successful implementation and exploitation of ideas.  

 

Delivery of a new product or service into the marketplace requires the successful individual or team to proceed with persistence and determination throughout the process, regardless of the obstacles that lay in their path.

 

Essentially, an intrapreneur would adopt the mindset, behaviour, and habits of a typical entrepreneur, taking into account the overall wellbeing of the company. 

 

Are you intrapreneurial ?

  • Do you think of your workplace as an environment to actualise your creativity ?
  • Do you get excited talking to other employees or like minded colleagues about your creative / innovative ideas ?
  • Do you find the lifestyle or risk associated with running your own business venture unappealing ?  
  • Do you wish to put your mark, or make a difference, on the company you work for ?
  • Do you consider yourself a steward of the business you work in ?

If you've answered 'yes' to any of the questions above, you are very likely intrapreneurially minded !

Why Intrapreneurship is Important ?

In today’s economic environment, businesses need more employees who regularly demonstrate ‘entrepreneurial’ characteristics and work habits to fuel growth.  

The success of an employee lies in their ability to manage short-term priorities, but equally maintain a strategic ‘entrepreneurial’ approach to their work on a daily basis.

Essentially, an entrepreneurial employee, or ‘intrapreneur’, will add value to the organisation beyond what is expected within their role, to set themselves apart from other employees.

Advance your skillset to the next level of performance, whilst simultaneously accomplish the overall goals of the organisation that you work for.

His own background as a successful entrepreneur enables him to understand and address issues from a very different angle. He has a unique ability to help and guide you to a point of self-realisation, which provides a much stronger impact when you yourself recognise the real issue, possible solution and/or way forward.
