THE JILLS are joining forces with the fabulous Brava Magazine gals at the 2017 Women's THRIVE Career Workshop Series:

Intrapreneurship: How Thinking Like an Entrepreneur Can Spark Explosive Results Within Your Organization.

Intrapreneurship is on the rise in the US and around the world, and it’s no wonder! As entrepreneurial thinking offers a way to spark creativity, fix problems, build collaborations, and get things done effectively, efficiently and based on evidence, why not bring this mindset into every organization? And why not start with you!

Join THE JILLS OF ALL TRADES™ Co-founders, Megan Boswell and Corinne Neil, as they start you on a path to becoming an intrapreneur. Through collaborative discussions, hands-on activities and guided instruction you’ll be able to bring an entrepreneurial mindset to your work, and your organization, no matter your position or your profession. In this workshop you will learn the basics of the entrepreneurial mindset and chart a course for implementing these strategies in easy and practical ways.

  • Learn why leading entrepreneurs like to ‘get out of the building’, and how you too can improve customer engagement, spark innovation, improve job satisfaction, and build better collaborations and partnerships with this philosophy.

  • Explore and utilize the Business Model Canvas to better understand the business of YOU and proactively reset your career so you can be more effective, efficient and energized at work.

  • Reframe your thinking about failure and understand the benefits of growth mindset thinking, why it’s critical for entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, and how it can help you solve problems and open you to new experiences.

  • Understand why collaboration is the new competitive advantage and develop techniques for improved collaborations.

  • Discover the importance of community as a foundation for implementing successful agile processes and productive feedback loops.  

  • Learn to embrace problems as the critical first step for innovation.


You’ll leave this workshop having laughed, learned and explored intrapreneurship in a practical and engaging way.  You’ll also gain a toolkit of entrepreneurial basics and a brand new mindset to take with you to work the very next day.
