Four Principles to Make Intra-preneurs Out of Your Stars

Take your star employees to the next level–make them intrapreneurs! It’s those folks in the organization who are embued with an entreprenerial spirit–we call them Self-Starters. Ignite their talent so that they can take their vision and passion for your company and its products to new heights! Perhaps a better way to do something in your company? A more efficient process? A way to make money with a new product or service?

To create that intrapreneurial culture within the organization, take them back to the basics, then unleash them with the resources and support to go for it!

Perseverance Trumps Adversity

Follow these steps, identified as Success Factors of successful intrapreneurs:

  1. Start Now. Share your vision with these talented folks–a vision of what you want the company to achieve. I am stunned by the number of individual contributors that I meet in my work who do NOT have a clue what the oganization’s vision is! The vision doesn’t have to be complicated at all.
  2. Then task them to integrate the company’s vision into their personal vision of the work they want to do.
  3. Paint your passion in vivid colors for them. Why is passion important here? How does it show up on a regular basis? Could you point to it, if you saw passion being demonstrated?
  4. Create a support system so that if things get tough and obstacles appear, you have a system to tackle those challenges to move forward. Perseverance is one of the keys to success.
