The pandemic has shown us that many organizations failed people. We are not ready for rock-bottom moments. We didn’t develop intrapreneurs.
Many intrapreneurship courses fail because they are based on the assumptions of experts. Companies buy canned training programs on the assumption that organizational and leadership challenges are universal.
This is wrong. But for many companies, it is easier to play same-same, safe, small, and slow. Challenge the status quo. Create and innovate. These short programs can help you equip intrapreneurs.
Design Thinking for Intrapreneurs
Design Thinking for Intrapreneurs is a two-day program that will help you appreciate the principles and apply the tools of Design Thinking.
Design Thinking is an iterative process in which we seek to understand the user, challenge assumptions, and redefine problems in an attempt to identify alternative strategies and solutions.
Design Thinking is not just for designers.
It is for anyone who has challenges to solve. It provides a solution-based approach to solving problems.
It is a way of thinking and working as well as a collection of hands-on methods.
Design Sprint was invented by Google Ventures and is used by innovative companies around the world. It is an intensive, highly structured 3-5 day innovation cycle.
Your teams will deep dive into a specific topic by prototyping, testing, and validating with end-users.
Our first goal is to help your teams to learn how to run Design Sprints.
This is the fastest way to turn your employees into intrapreneurs. You can equip them to be innovators. They’ll learn how to choose the right programs to find many possible and practicable solutions.
Gamestorming is like brainstorming on steroids. It can be used for a small team or large crowds. It helps you understand a set of practices that can accelerate business innovation.
For us to create new solutions to old and new problems, we’ve got to produce a lot of ideas. Of course, you can come up with ideas by brainstorming, brain-racking, or journaling. Gamestorming is playing for a purpose.
This is why I use gamestorming when I run strategic planning, team building, and intrapreneurship workshops.
Of course, you can learn gamestorming your way. You can buy the book Gamestorming: A Playbook for Innovators, Rulebreakers, and Changemakers by Dave Gray and others.

Customer Journey Mapping
Customer Journey Mapping is recommended for organizations maniacal about improving customer experience.
This is a one-day program that I run for teams tasked to create magical customer moments.
If you have heard of Moments of Truth which an airline company used to improve customer service, this one is more powerful.
The moments that your customers remember are moments of truth, misery, and magic. Most customers tell people about you because of moments of misery. What makes them evangelists is the moments of magic.
All these moments and every touchpoint you have with your customers are part of customer experiences.
What if you can map customer experience and create moments of magic? What if you can wow customers without having to spend more? What if you can turn your employees into intrapreneurs who are in love with your customers?
You know the answers and I want these for you.
Customer journey mapping is one of the tools you can use in Customer Experience Management.
Employee Engagement Journey
In Employee Engagement Journey, I use the same tools and principles in customer journey mapping.
This workshop can help the human resource department come up with programs that will attract and retain the best talents for the organization. This can also help managers enhance employee experiences.
This is a two-day workshop that includes mapping journeys, creating engagement strategies, and developing initial steps to engage employees.
If you love your employees and you want to empower leaders of your organization, Employee Engagement Journey is a program you ought to have now.
Intrapreneurship Workshop for Managers
Entrepreneurs changed the world that we knew. The speed of change is unimaginable that many young people don’t know the world before there was the internet.
But there is another kind of entrepreneurs which we cannot ignore. I am talking about intrapreneurs.
An intrapreneur is an individual within an organization who uses his or her entrepreneurial talent to further the development of the company for which he or she works.
“Virgin could never have grown into the group of more than 200 companies it is now, were it not for a steady stream of intrapreneurs who looked for and developed opportunities, often leading efforts that went against the grain.” – Richard Branson on Intrapreneurs
In the Intrapreneurship Workshop, managers will learn:
- How to identify potential intrapreneurs within their organizations.
- How to nurture an intrapreneur.
- How to inspire employees to think like intrapreneurs.

- How to foster an intrapreneurial culture in their workplace.
I can help you design new learning experiences to develop intrapreneurs in the workplace. The Intrapreneurship Workshop for Managers will inspire managers to build an army of employees who find creative solutions to organizational problems.
