Mindset matters: Innovation and overcoming the resistance to change
We all get teary-eyed and enthusiastically head-nod when visionary people advise us to think differently, to test and learn, to innovate. It resonates with us because we've witnessed the result of them changing something for the better. But we miss the journey it takes to get there, when they were testing and evaluating in order to learn and innovate. Often times our perception is that one simple iteration will be all it takes. But, innovation has no finish line. Hear from one of Silicon Valley's leading entrepreneurs, Brit Morin, the Founder and CEO of Brit + Co, who will explain why when the world changes, you need to change with it. It takes experimentation, which inherently includes being adaptable and open-minded to facing challenges in new ways. Brit will share her experience in the start-up world and how when creating a nimble culture, you have to help people forgo their comfort zone and embrace ongoing change, which is where the real growth happens.
