💡 A few key highlights:
Intrapreneurship as a philosophy
The main distinction between an intrapreneur and an entrepreneur lies in the context and resources they operate within. Besides that, both of them share almost the same skills: being a good listener, working on understanding the needs of stakeholders, being a problem solver, demonstrating flexibility and autonomy, and possessing curiosity, resilience, proactivity, and adaptability.
Along the way, a horizontal structure provides the opportunity to foster initiatives and execute them effectively, allowing for constructive development.
Teams taking ownership of their work and understanding clients’ needs can provide better services and deliver enhanced value. Essential components such as constant communication, openness to feedback, a clear goal, and a shared vision of the company’s direction, along with transparent sharing of information like numbers, results, profit, and salaries, form the basis for informed decision-making and autonomy, contributing to the main endeavor.
Integrating micro individual learnings into the final value proposition plays a pivotal role in driving innovation, benefiting both clients and the overall business.
Is one of the key skills an intrapreneur should possess inherently. When aiming to lead the competition, it’s inevitable that many endeavors may encounter setbacks. The important thing is not to cultivate a culture of punishment. Instead, avoid getting frustrated or demotivated, maintain composure, and rise again. Seek feedback to identify areas for improvement.
Sometimes, the improvement of a process may not achieve complete success. However, if 20% out of 100% worked, it still represents a 20% rate of success.
This progress means doing things better than before. While 100% success is ideal, 20% progress is far better than 0%. Don’t dwell on doubts about what could have been if you tried something different. Take action, learn from the experience, and gain valuable insights.
Have the right people at the right time
No company wants to stay stable; you always want more. To achieve this, everybody must understand our direction and be on board. Then you will go fast.
To avoid delays, everyone should know their roles, what we want to achieve, and how. Perfection is the enemy of progress, in a big company, you need more people on board, so clarity is crucial.
The key success factor is knowing who needs to do what. Don’t expect the full company to be involved; find the perfect people who can do it.
