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 1980s and refers to a 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 success and innovation. Although they may not own the company, they are accountable for their power to change the future of their company. This workshop will arm you the tools to own the business you are in.
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
