“Social” Intrapreneurship - Why Purpose is Crucial for Resilience and Success

Intrapreneurship programs have a limited success rate. Most entrepreneurial ventures fail as well, so this is not surprising. But Intrapreneurs face additional resistance that startups don’t face. To overcome internal strategic and cultural barriers to innovation, a strong intrinsic motivation is crucial for the intrapreneur’s success. This is best accomplished with an inspiring purpose and a connection to something beyond commercial success. Especially in a time when we are facing massive changes in our environment and global dynamics, “social” intrapreneurship will be the new business as usual.

Luman will lead a 90-minute workshop to create a connection to personal purpose and show a replicable framework for generating future-focused solutions. Together we will address the challenge of maintaining adaptability and developing the support systems required to lead intrapreneurship in your organization.
