Rekha Mehr, MassChallenge UK – How are large organisations like ocean liners?
Rekha Mehr of MassChallenge UK talks about creating change and innovation in the public sector in this short video.
Hi, we are Happy
We are leading a movement to create happy, empowered and productive workplaces.
How can we help you and your people to find joy in at least 80% of your work?
How are large organisations like ocean liners?
Rekha gave a great talk about her experiences as Director of Partnerships of MassChallenge UK, an organisation that identifies new partnerships between mentors, communities and funding to help entrepreneurs.
In her experience, the main barriers to innovation and change were internal – having the confidence and the time to make change was key. If staff feel overwhelmed or stressed, and that change is too much work, it won’t happen.
She gave an excellent analogy, of how large organisations are like large ships – change can be slow to implement. You can watch this in our video clip above.
