So The Intrapreneur Lab is taking place this week at Saïd Business School and we’ve been working night and day these past few weeks getting ready.
One of the best things has been preparing for the ‘Inside the Intrapreneur Studio’ sessions - in-depth interviews exploring the personal and professional journeys of successful intrapreneurs from some of the world’s largest companies.
I have found them all to be deeply inspirational people.
Humble, driven & passionate in equal measure – and a real testament to my belief that we are not born brilliant, but become brilliant through our life-choices.
And whilst they take great pains to point out that the projects they are delivering are the result of many factors – visionary leaders, a great team and just being at the right place at the right time – I have no doubt that if it wasn’t for these individuals, these projects simply would not been as successful as they are.
So some questions for us to think about:
- What does it take to be a social intrapreneur?
- Is social intrapreneurship always possible? Is a certain ‘enabling-environment’ required or can you make it happen regardless?
- How do you measure the success of a social intrapreneur?
Look forward to hearing your thoughts...
