In this episode, Nancy Murphy, the Founder & President of CSR Communications, talks to us about what an intrepreneur is, how we can disrupt and make impactful change within organizations and established systems, and swaying change-resistant powers.
Nancy has spent her career saying what others are afraid to – and learning to say it in ways that others will listen. She’s the founder and president of CSR Communications and creator of Intrapreneurs Influence Lab. Her passion is helping leaders of change within established organizations (intrapreneurs) influence and persuade others so that they can realize their vision for change faster, with less frustration and resistance.
Nancy mentors and advises executives from local governments, federal agencies, global nonprofits, foundations, and Fortune 100 companies. As a trainer and speaker, Nancy has shared her expertise from Kuala Lumpur to Kansas City and London to Las Vegas. Nancy holds a master’s degree in public affairs from the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School, a master’s in health communication from Boston University, and a bachelor’s degree in American Studies from the University of Dayton.

[21:23] Final Words
“For many entrepreneurs, their impact is small at first, and it may never grow. But what if we could leverage the scope, the scale, the resources, the reach, the financial stability, the talent, the expertise of these large organizations that are already there? What if we could just get them to operate more innovatively with more respect and embracing of diversity and inclusion, with better equity, more environmental sustainability, and social responsibility? If we can do that, we are going to get the world we want much faster.” - Nancy Murphy
“The one thing you can control when it comes to resistance is how you view resistance.” - Nancy Murphy
“That's what this lab is designed to do, over the course of six months, walk people through the key components of how to be a credible leader of change, how to overcome resistance, how to communicate more effectively, how to map the influence and power centers in your organization, and how to manage transitions once you're in the middle of change.” - Nancy Murphy
