The Intrapreneur

The values of the entrepreneur are well documented:

  • A problem solver
  • Ambitious
  • Transparent
  • Empathetic
  • Adaptable
  • Accountable
  • Focused
  • Integrable

Companies understand that competition is not only coming from global rivals but the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which will transform not only how you work but why you work. So if companies want to attract and keep a talented, you, there needs to be a corporate mind shift. 

I believe there needs to be a shift from short-term thinking to long-term thinking, which involves a serious conversation about investing in human capital. You are beginning to see some of that now with companies investing resources in building teams of intrapreneurs.

These are high-performing team members that share many of the values of an entrepreneur. That employee is vital to any company because they add value during any period of change.
