Achieve Success In the Workplace By Unleashing Your Inner Entrepreneur

UWF Conference Center

Companies that embrace creativity are three and a half times more likely to outperform rivals. Creativity and innovation are key to business acumen when creating a culture of adaptability and growth. Leveraging the potential of an organization’s workforce adds value to organizational processes, employee satisfaction and customer loyalty.

“In today’s organizational structure it is imperative to be innovative in order to maintain or gain market share,” says Dr. Cheryl Kirby, the event’s featured presenter. “Efficiency and adaptability are at the forefront of business strategies. If organizations do not adapt, they cannot compete in today’s economy.”

How can this be achieved? Intrapreneurship. Intrapreneurship equates to fostering an environment for employees to be entrepreneurial to accelerate innovation in the workplace.

During this engaging presentation, participants will gain practical knowledge and strategies to discover and encourage intrapreneurial thinking. Quint Studer will be featured as a case study of an “intrapreneur” – one who takes risks in a company to invent and solve problems – who became an entrepreneur.

“Quint Studer perfected a process and tools to teach healthcare leaders across the country a systematic approach to create a culture of innovation leadership,” says Dr. Kirby. “He included a culture of innovation leadership competencies to gain desired results from a workforce.”

After the presentation, attendees at the live event will have the exclusive opportunity to spend time with Dr. Kirby practicing a new approach to solve problems. This will be an exercise in using a tool that you will be able to adapt in your workplace immediately.
