ARE YOU AN INTRAPRENEUR?

Bruce Wayne is an excellent entrepreneur – sacrificing his sleep, and his personal and social life in order to keep up with his start-up of ‘Justice In Gotham’ city. Taking risks, allocating wealth to support his cause, Wayne’s invention of Batman is an innovative disruptor of the crime world.

Any entrepreneur, corporation or organisation, needs a stable core team – or otherwise known as a group of “Intrapreneurs.”

These are the people who come up with answers to problems, the ones that make out of box thinking a reality, the ones who enable Bruce Wayne to rise up to the occasion and do his Batman thing.

So how do you know if YOU are different from a regular employee?

You are fully invested

You have faith and confidence in your team and in their abilities and you become successful by helping others succeed. An Intrapreneur will always be emotionally connected to the people and the product. You feel sorrow in bad times and are a part of the joy when milestones are conquered. Your team is your extended family, and loyalty is important to you.

A problem-identifier-come-solutionprovider

You often save the day, fix things or find a way ahead. You make decisions on your own, when your team is stuck, becoming the torch bearer to lead the way out of the cave. If a plant doesn’t bloom, you focus on fixing the environment in which it grows, instead of focusing on the plant.

Self-starter

Intrapreneurs are innovative. You are a passionate self-starter who is ambitious enough to further your career without the help of others.

Not strictly money-motivated

Another trait of an intrapreneur is that they’re not typically money-motivated. You might appreciate a monetary bonus, but it’s not what drives you to succeed.
