    • Summary

      What is the difference between intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship? Better yet, how can one significantly impact your leadership approach within the field of career services?

      Join Jennifer Mobley, Grove City College, to discuss intrapreneurship, the ability to lead change from within organizations, an essential skill for 21st century career services leaders. Intrapreneurship borrows from the principles of entrepreneurship. Whereas entrepreneurship is the act of spearheading a new business or venture, intrapreneurship is the act of initiating new programs, services, and systemic change within your organization. “The person who leads the career office has to be a systems thinker, a strategic communicator, an effective people and change manager, a persuasive, diplomatic speaker, and a courageous yet patient and politically savvy leader," states Andy Chan. This is indeed a tall order, but these skills and attributes are at the heart of intrapreneurship.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Develop a business case advocating for career services to senior leadership;
      • Navigate the political system and establish a network of allies; and
      • Nurture a growth mindset and momentum for large scale change.
