6 Questions with Christopher White

April 6, 2015

Chris White interviewed in Net Impact:

“Net Impact: Now that more people are becoming social intrapreneurs, what’s the most encouraging trend you’re seeing as the field grows?

“Chris White: The receptivity of senior leaders to the energy and skill of social intrapreneurs. One might think that CEOs would be afraid of intrapreneurs, but that hasn’t been my experience at all. They love the high engagement and commitment. I sometimes talk about the generational sandwich we have right now. A lot has been written about the millennials’ desire for purpose, and there are lots of CEOs who had some of their formative years in the idealistic activism of the 1960s. If we can unleash intrapreneurs in the middle of that sandwich, we have a really great window of opportunity for creating change in organizations and in the world.”
