Intrapreneurialism And High Performance

Unlike the term entrepreneur, the term intrapreneur is a relatively recent one. In essence, it is the act of behaving like an entrepreneur whilst working within a large organisation. In other words, it is the demonstration of business skills, personal leadership and creative problem-solving abilities that enables employees to find, explore and implement worthy ideas that will help the organisation to be future-ready and relevant. In a fast-moving world, intrapreneurs can be the source of energy and creativity that helps an organisation (especially one steeped in bureaucracy), to find and exploit change and innovation opportunities.

Could your organisation do with more intrapreneurs?

Human Helium: How Intrapreneurs Help Organisations to Soar

Intrapreneurialism is the act of behaving like an entrepreneur whilst working INSIDE a large organisation. It is the demonstration of business skills, personal leadership and creative problem-solving abilities that enables employees to find, explore and implement worthy ideas that enable the organisation to be future-ready and relevant.

Program For Public Sector Agencies

Human Helium: Creating Intrapreneurs in the Public Sector Who Will Help Agencies to Soar

There are some very compelling reasons to place emphasis on intrepreneurialism in government. Bringing an intrapreneurial mind-set to public service, can help government achieve many of its key goals such as cutting red tape, streamlining bureaucratic processes, enhancing procurement, transitioning to digitisation and diversifying delivery models.

Intrepreneurialism is a relatively new concept in government departments so there is a skills gap in this area. This program addresses that gap.

Organisations typically have people at many different levels of readiness when it comes to being intrapreneurial. Factors influencing their level could be things like length of time in the organisation, career stage, previous experience, perceptions about their leader’s openness to new ideas, confidence, levels of trust and collaboration, nature of professional development undertaken, to name but a few.

The program migrates people up the five stages.

The Seat Warmer is the disengaged employee who is not looking to add value to the organisation or their team. This person demonstrates low levels of commitment, self-leadership and problem-solving so their performance is below average. They often have a negative impact on a team hence the rating of X-1 in performance. In reality their negative influence may be far greater.

The Rule Follower is committed to doing things the way they have always done them. Their average performance rating combined with the outcome rating of x1 reflects their skill of maintaining the status quo.

The Questioner is someone who is actively seeking for better ways of doing things so they deliver above average performance. They may be described a ‘intrapreneurs in waiting’. A failure to develop them results in unfulfilled potential.

The Problem Solver is someone who jumps at the chance to make things better. If they see an opportunity, they will act on it with due diligence. The solutions they produce and their openness to collaborate, facilitate the team to high performance. Hence their outcome rating is conservatively placed at X4, in reality it is probably much higher depending on the nature of the problems they solve.

The Opportunity Finder is the true intrapreneur. This person goes beyond being a good problem-solver to being a talented problem-finder. In other words, they are excellent strategic thinkers who can look ahead and identify potential problems before they turn into crises that sap time, energy and resources. They are constantly vigilant in seeking out opportunities to strengthen the organisation. They see it as their responsibility to be aware of the emerging trends, locally and globally, that are impacting their field and spend time thinking and reflecting on how to ride or navigate them.

How many people do you have in your organisation at each level?

Imagine the IMPACT it would have on your team’s or department’s effectiveness if you could migrate a critical mass of people to the highest level.

This program is ideal for:
  • Leaders
  • Emerging leaders
  • Project managers
  • Influencers
  • Team leaders and supervisors

Using a masterful blend of integrated learning channels and experiences, this program takes people on a unique and rewarding journey into intrapreneurialism. They learn how to rise above the forces that limit performance and sap entrepreneurial spirit. In so doing they bring enormous value to their agency.

Talk to me if:
  • You have leaders or team members whose intrapreneurial talent and potential is currently underutilised
  • Your leaders or emerging leaders want to behave more like intrapreneurs but are not sure how or lack the confidence
  • You recognise that intrepreneurialism is a new and important capacity that needs developing in your workforce and you want to upskill your people.
