Andres Manuel Olivares Miranda | How to Act like an Entrepreneur in the Workplace

  1. 1. HOW TO ACT LIKE AN ENTREPRENEUR IN THE WORKPLACE by Andres Manuel Olivares Miranda
  2. 2. ENTREPRENEURSHIP VS. BUSINESS Working in a large organization comes with the benefit of a large salary. However, employees find it hard to progress because the organization has a rigid way of doing things. Many managers in large organizations still believe in doing what has worked previously to achieve the firm’s objectives. However, few organizations encourage their workers to be intrapreneurs so that they can improve their overall performance. Below are some of the things that employees from such organizations do: 
  3. 3. TAKING ON CHALLENGES Such organizations encourage their employees to be outgoing and take on challenges. An entrepreneur succeeds because he or she doesn’t fear taking risks. If an employee is afraid of public speaking, his or her boss will expose them to more public events. In fact, they will be in charge of product launches. That way, the worker learns from his or her fear and is not afraid to do more for the company. 
  4. 4. NEVER BE COMFORTABLE The reason why entrepreneurs become successful is that they always pay attention to the market. They never let anything get past them. They’re always aware of the competition, and they do their best to stay ahead. If an employee wants to progress, he or she has to learn to treat the firm as theirs. They should make sure that they use the least amount of money to achieve significant progress. 
  5. 5. DON’T BE AFRAID OF A GOOD DEBATE Entrepreneurs stand for what they believe in, and they never let anyone tell them otherwise. They will argue if they have to because they have a point to prove. Employees that have great ideas should have the same attitude. They should do the research, gather all the facts to support their argument, and approach the management for the project’s approval. However, they should not be too aggressive about it since it can come off as a sign of disrespect to their seniors. Instead, they ought to be assertive and firm in their arguments.
