Program Summary

How do some staffing companies’ break through barriers while others seem to simply plateau? Many entrepreneurs who have started their own staffing business and overcame the odds, point to innovation and culture as their secrets to success.

Acclaimed consultant, author and speaker Mark David Jones takes this one step further to call these industry leaders “intrapreneurs.”

The foundation of intrapreneurship is innovation and appropriate risk-taking – leading to professional and personal growth (and the associated rewards that come with them). In the midst of an established corporate structure, you enjoy the benefits of leveraging the resources and opportunities of a larger operation. Tied to this, however, is the challenge of doing so within a complex industry culture and more people with established expectations of “how we do things around here.”

How can you launch your intrapreneurial efforts to take your career and organization to the next level? Join us for this power-hour where we will cover:

  • Tips to increase value and grow your team, division and company
  • Test ideas without disrupting your culture: Tactics for appropriate risk-taking
  • Communication tricks to manage the emotions that come with organizational change
  • Maintain a bias for action: Create organizational growth and a competitive edge
  • Techniques to establish support systems that employ your new intrapreneurial initiative
