Own the Business You Are In! Intrapreneurship Strategies to Take Charge of your Destiny, Transform your Career, and create Power from Within

Published on

Rumor has it that job security is a thing of the past. As the many businesses and industries are faced with uncertain futures, employees are left with a few narrow options. Some begin looking for other positions to secure a “back up” plan, while others sit back, fingers crossed, hoping things will get better. Who is ultimately responsible for the success or failure of a business? What role do you really play? Intrapreneurship is a term coined in the 1980’s and refers to an “entrepreneur type” mindset among leaders and employee within a corporation. Intrapreneurs approach their jobs with entrepreneurial zest. Within the company's guidelines, they have all of the resources and people available to them to create an impact on success and innovation. Although they may not own the company, they are accountable for the power to change the future of their company. This workshop will arm you with the tools to own the business you are in.

Learning Outcomes: Increase business management and leadership skills and enhance professional productivity

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

a) Explore the benefits of intrapreneurship
b) Identify the skills needed to transform from employee to a strategic contributor
c) Converse with successful intrapreneurers
d) Build an intrapreneurer action plan

  • Why is this important now….Workplace is much challenging then ever before.Jobs….Unemployment is still on the rise (9-16%)….recovery is not expected for another 5 years.Globalization…Majority of Jobs re in STEM related fields….most of the growth is outside of the US.-Other indicators: Rise in the Middle Eastern and Latin American emerging markets( Africa, Egypt, Saudi Arabia) which the majority of the BRIC’s are softening …e.g. reaching maturity).Technology..the Intranet has created 2.6 jobs for every one it has destroyed…all of which are entrepreneurial in nature….demanding the skills of intraprenuers.Engagement…25% of high potential employees are at high risk of leaving their companies within the next year…or less.Shifting Demographics…more than 100K Baby Boomers will retire everyday for the next 19 years. How we replace them and the new skills needed will be important.Higher Demand for Performance and Innovation, Relationships….companies want to differentiate performance (attract, promote, develop and reward the best). Paternalistic leadership views of the 20th Century (e.g. Peter Drucker and ideals for fairness have changed). While fairness still counts….the degrees of freedom have changes. ….Customers demand more for less (the new normal), product cycles are shorter, relationships are more complex….requiring system level solutions that are innovative (e.g. offer a competitive advantage, simple) and collaborative (e.g. multiple inputs from stakeholders and end-users).
  • Take career assessments, personality tests, skill tests, etc.
  • Background:Started career as technician with the Republic of Singapore Air Force.

Came to Boeing because he sought broader, more challenging work environment.Finished degree in supplier management and looked for opportunities in his current role to add value by looking at the bigger picture when assessing customer parts requirements and making recommendations that can help customers over the long term. Continued education with business management program and eventually earned an MBAGoal is continued leadership roleInteresting fact: has completed multiple marathons because he is attracted to challenge
  • How do you get your mentors? You do this with your co-workers. Find someone one or two levels up from you in your department and build a relationship with them. Developing that thought leadership and having a thought partner or trust buddy gives you the confidence you need when dealing with senior leaders.
  • Questions for the audience:How do I get started?I have a technical background; how do I build a business acumen so I can talk to others in the organization? (project manage, resources, finances, etc.)How do I find a mentor/advocate/sponsor? Have a career plan/road map before you ask. Will help you figure out who you want to work with (someone with similar experience/interest)How do I start to build a network internally and externally? Sponsors/advocates can help throughout your career; first step is understanding how your organization works (structure, key strategies, line of sight, strategic vector of the company). How to put yourself in a situation where you can work with a future sponsorHow will volunteering help me? You will have opportunity to participate in strategic thought sessions with leaders; seek out board assignments (even in advisory role)
