The INTRApreneur and The Intrapreneurialistic Workplace
Dr Irena Yashin-Shaw with Nina Sunday
In this podcast episode of ‘Manage Self, Lead Others’ Dr Irena Yashin-Shaw speaks with Nina Sunday on, ‘The Intrapreneur: How to foster an Intrapreneurial culture’, https://lnkd.in/g_RvswN
What is an intrapreneur?
Intrapreneurs ask the difficult questions. They step up and challenge the status quo.
Why the intrapreneurialism movement is important right now
How can an organization foster an intrapreneurial culture?
The importance of giving people permission to experiment, to think differently and use their creativity.
Entrapreneurs are problem solvers who are being recognized as the driving force behind innovation in organizations. Dr. Irena Yashin-Shaw is leading the charge in this new way of working. In this episode, she shares how to be an intrapreneur and how to create a culture that fosters creativity and intrapreneurialism.
On this episode, you’ll hear how Dr Irena Yashin-Shaw transitioned from a high school teacher to become Australia’s leading expert on creativity and innovation. Listen in when she discusses the strategies she uses to facilitate knowledge retention and behaviour change in the workshops.
On this episode, Dr Irena Yashin-Shaw discusses, in BizTalk with Emmanuel, Intrapreneurship. That it’s not new, and is fundamental to the success of any organisation in the world, yet still very little attention has been placed on it.
In this podcast I am in conversation with Henry Rowley from Sideways 6, a London based firm who help organisations harvest the brilliant ideas of their employees.
Some of the topics we cover are:
What does it mean to be an intrapreneur?
Am I an Intrapreneur?
What is intrapreneurialism?
Why is the rise of intrapreneurialism essential to the future of business?
And some quirky stories along the way.
My guest today says, “Intrapreneurs are the future of work, the future of talent AND the future of your organization.”
Joining me today is Dr Irena Yashin-Shaw

With a PhD in creative problem-solving and a Masters in Adult Education, she is a rare combination of deep academic knowledge, real-world entrepreneurial experience and a dedicated educator on a mission to liberate underutilised talent in workplaces.
