Recognize Intrapreneurs Before They Leave

Recognize Intrapreneurs Before They Leave | Lead without a Title | Scoop.it
Six patterns of great corporate innovators.
Ruta Danyte's insight:

Any CEO can tell you that finding ideas is not the always the problem. The real issue is selecting and spreading the best ideas, testing quickly, and executing flawlessly. An “innovation engine” is an organization’s capability to think and invest in long-term opportunities along with the competence to drive continuous innovations for top-line growth each year.

 

To build your innovation engine, your firm must excel at operationalizing ideas from your energized people who are willing to do everything they can to fight off internal resistance without creating chaos. This is your bench of corporate innovators: your intrapreneurs.

 

You already have natural intrapreneurs in your company. Some you know about, but most are hiding. These individuals are not always your top talent or the obvious rebels or mavericks. But theyare unique and certainly the opposite of “organization men.” When you find them and support them correctly, and magic will occur.

 

Intrapreneurs can transform an organization more quickly and effectively than others because they are self‐motivated free thinkers, masters at navigating around bureaucratic and political inertia.

3 Practical Secrets Of Innovative Leaders

3 Practical Secrets Of Innovative Leaders | Lead without a Title | Scoop.it

Math: 1+1+1 = A Lot. Healthy platform for continuous innovation:

 

Secret #1. Talk to the Right People
Your most important asset is your mind. To expand your vision, meet with other minds! Make it a habit to identify and visit the people who will provide you with fresh ideas, key learning, new tactics, and strong strategies.

 

Secret #2. Articulate the Way Forward
Communication is crucial. By clearly and repeatedly taking the time to spell out what you are trying to do you will build a base of informed actors to help you innovate.
Speak in terms people can understand and relate to. Encourage diverse points of view and different backgrounds. Let people react, inquire, challenge, and extract the information they need to satisfy their understanding. Then you will be in the best position to move forward together. Customize your message to your audience. Include something useful in their day-to-day work--utility helps information stick.

 

Secret #3. Build Informal Partnerships that Generate Synergy.
Leadership today is largely about identifying the partnerships that will lead to broad, powerful impact and growth. Let me be clear--I’m talking about supportive and symbiotic relationships here, not contractual business partnerships. There is a tremendous amount that can be done on the basis of mutual interest alone.
