You have gifts to share with the world and my job is to help you get them out there.read more
Depending on how long we’ve known each other…
You may already know that I love karaoke. And, hip hop. And, sharing ideas and possibilities that fuel your life forward.
But never did I fathom a day when I could do all three, pretty much at once. Thank the sweet goddess of pumpkin lattes, that day has come.
The spark of inspiration was lit when Donna, one of our delightful readers, wrote in asking about how to change her company’s culture as an intrapreneur.I'm a creative genius and there's no other way to word it. @kanyewest Click To Tweet
She has a bucketful of smart ideas to take the company profitably into the future, but she’s feeling stymied because she’s not the boss.
Hers is a tricky and important question: if you’re not in charge, how can you create positive change within the business you work for?
Frankly, even if you are the boss, these five steps will help you more effectively create alignment and gain faster momentum within your company. Personally, this framework can help get your significant other, family or friends onboard with your next exciting idea or big adventure.
Oh yes, about the Kanye part.
I was listening to some classic Yeezy before working on this episode and, voila. Some of Mr. West’s most popular tracks contained jewels of insight that could serve as the guidetrack (and soundtrack) to Donna’s dilemma.
A fast cross reference on YouTube’s ever-growing audio library of approved music confirmed that we could joyfully and legally create a Kanye inspired guide to corporate change.
Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to hear from you.
Have you ever spearheaded change from within an organization? Specifically, what worked and what didn’t?
Or, if you run a business and have lessons to share from your own intrapreneurs, I’d love to hear them. Leave a comment below and let me know.
Remember, do your best to share as much detail as you can because thousands of incredible souls come here each week for insight and inspiration. Your experience may just be what someone else needs to have a breakthrough.
Important: please share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. may be deleted as they can come across as spammy.
Gigantic thanks for reading, watching and sharing with such exuberance! You’re an undeniable demonstration of how lovely and supportive the internet can be.
P.S. Next Tuesday is the release of my first ever jewelry collection with one of my favorite global brands Satya Jewelry (pic here of yours truly modeling all 3 pieces). If you might like one, set a calendar reminder for October 6th. As usual, we’re giving away a set or two and it is time sensitive!
All my love and appreciation,
