About Corporate Entrepreneurs
The key to enhanced performance and innovation success is aligning the right individuals with your innovation goals. It is crucial to find, support and develop these innovators the best way possible. But do you know who they are?
Corporate entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and entrepreneurial leaders are individuals inside established organizations responsible for building new businesses, products, services or processes that create value and generate new business growth.
Intrapreneurs are often creating something new, something that has never been done before. There are no roadmaps or guidebooks for them to follow.
They need to deal with complexity, ambiguity and the unknown. They need to be able to influence and negotiate effectively for ideas and concepts that many will find hard to comprehend. They must be decisive, take risks and stick out their necks. But often, they have the feeling they don’t speak the same language as many of the other leaders in your organization.
In most organizations corporate entrepreneurs are a hidden talent. The reason they are hidden is that there has been no way to spot them, but even once spotted, no way to support and develop them so that they can operate most effectively.
At the moment they understand what it takes to be successful and where they are currently, they are better able to leverage their strengths and deal more effectively with areas that need development. They make better choices and achieve results more effectively.
The good news? All this is possible. We can help you to identify these individuals, benchmark them against other corporate entrepreneurs and regular executives, and start having them focus on what matters in order to grow the business even more.
Corporate Entrepreneurs are leaders with a distinct set of competencies. Discover the Six Critical Competencies for Corporate Entrepreneurs in our free report
Successful innovation requires leaders with a distinct set of competencies.
The skills and capabilities that propelled most executives to the top of organizations are not the skills required to build new growth businesses. However most organizations do not yet recognize this difference or know who is best suited for leading innovation.
We worked with senior executives across a wide spectrum of industries that were responsible for building million and billion dollar businesses for their organizations, found the distinct set of competencies these leaders exhibited.
Top Six Competencies:
• Independent Thinking
• Navigating Uncertainty
• Engaged and Thriving
• Driving Change
• Leadership Effectiveness
Corporate entrepreneurs aren’t your regular executives. The Corporate Entrepreneurs Profile™ helps you to support them in a way that leverages their strengths fully – it is must-have in any organization’s “People” toolbox.
Here’s a screenshot from the actual report you’ll get:
We identified 17 competencies and 33 behaviors corporate entrepreneurs need to be effective and designed a unique assessment tool for them.
The Corporate Entrepreneur Profile™ is a success profile. It looks at the critical behaviors and competencies of successful corporate entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and entrepreneurial leaders.
- Competencies needed to drive innovation from idea through to implementation.
- Competencies that help transform your culture to be more entrepreneurial.
- Competencies that motivate and engage your employees to be more productive.
- Competencies that help you execute your strategies to get results.
The Corporate Entrepreneur Profile™ also helps identify both the individual and organizational issues that get in the way of developing entrepreneurship. It highlights strengths, areas of opportunity, and it makes recommendations for future development.
The Corporate Entrepreneur Profile™ includes a detailed 20+ report, broken into three sections, competencies, behaviors and development. It highlights strengths, areas of opportunity, and it makes recommendations for future development.
We designed and developed the profile in collaboration with the Devine Group, a behavioral assessment vendor with over forty years of experience developing success profiles for specific job functions. Individual results are compared against a database of 10,000 profiles.
According to the Devine Group, “Competency based assessments provide a means for building skills and knowledge people must have in order to perform their job well.”

What Our Clients Are Saying
After having professional experience in small companies and in the self-employment field, I was hired by a large international corporation. Moving from a non-structured and constantly changing business environment to a big structured organisation can be quite difficult and confusing. By taking the Corporate Entrepreneur Profile™ assessment and analysing my report it was clear to me that I could succeed in the corporate environment by utilizing my intrapreneurial abilities. The most useful part of the report was the growth and development review which pointed out my strengths and weaknesses. Based on this and with Susan’s help, I have designed a development plan that is vital in pursuing my career goals.
Susan Foley helped to open the eyes of our organization on how to identify, nurture and leverage Intrapreneurs within our organization so that we can lead through the ever changing market conditions. There’s no question – we have to do business in a new way and different way going forward. The tools and information shared by Susan will help us do that.
The Corporate Entrepreneur Profile helped our innovation team understand what they needed to change to be more effective with our business partners. Since then we have successfully launched a number of innovations with our business partners.
The Corporate Entrepreneur Profile gave me a deeper insight and more accurate assessment of my competencies than what I had learned at the Center for Creative Leadership.
I absolutely loved having my profile results, and I found it very helpful in formulating the “next entrepreneurial creation” of my career.
I look at my Corporate Entrepreneur Profile before every meeting to prepare myself so I can leverage my strengths and minimize my weaknesses.
