Build High Performing Teams Podcast

Jun 23, 2020

I want to talk to you about intrapreneurs, I get this question asked a lot, “What is an intrapreneur?” A lot of people ask me if I am an intrapreneur, everybody wants to know, so here we go. I have a little bit of knowledge about what an intrapreneur is. In today’s episode, I’m going to tell you why I am passionate about it, how I got to this topic, and then how I support the work of intrapreneurs.

Okay, so a definition of an intrapreneur is someone who displays entrepreneurial traits and chooses to work within an organization. So that could be a for-profit company, non-profit organization, hospital, church, school, startup, any of those things. That's an organization, whenever two or more people are gathered together around a common cause. 

Intrapreneurs are in any system, they're in any organization. If you are someone who wants to own your time, talents, and voice within that system, and use that to create change to work against the status quo, then you're probably someone that I would identify as an intrapreneur!
