The “new day, new problem” world that we are currently navigating requires us to rethink our leadership strategy. I believe that one of the changes that organizations need to make to grow out of these uncertain times is to recognize and empower our "Intrepreneurs." I define these gems as micro-entrepreneurs who are so deeply vested in the success of the organization, that the behave like entrepreneurs. They constantly look for ways to do more, disrupt the status-quo, and are catalyst for culture change - they are our problem-solvers.
These superheroes can be easily identified as they display the highest level of empathy and, not surprisingly, other team members are naturally drawn to them, follow their lead, and confide in them.
So if you, as a the entrepreneur/leader, are still making decisions by only talking to other “leaders on top”, without spending time with your Intrepreneurs - you are making a mistake. Because if you really want to know what needs to change to navigate these difficult times: identify these gems, then slow down, listen, and shine a light on your Intrepreneurs - they probably have answers to most the problems you are getting sleepless nights over!
