Think Like a Startup

Does your organization have a startup mentality?

Summary
Transcript

Angela Raub, CEO and president of Leadercast, explains why all organizations, despite how long they’ve been around, should think like a startup.

“In my opinion, we all work for startups,” shares Angela. “We can see organizations that may be 150 years old, but you truly need to look at your position as a startup. Because in this day and age, the competitive threat, quite honestly, exists within your organization.”

Watch the video to learn more from Angela about thinking entrepreneurially as an organization.

I think in this day and age, we all, because of the rate of change and the rate of business, have to be entrepreneurial. And so, quite frankly, in my opinion, we all work for startups. We can see organizations that may be 150 years old, but you truly need to look at your position as a startup. Because in this day and age, the competitive threat, quite honestly, exists within your organization.

In the days that we live in and everything consistently changing, we are required, a bit, even if you don't feel that you're an entrepreneur, to put that hat on. And I think to be an entrepreneur is strictly being willing to look at things very differently, sooner than later. And that's the ability to say, "Now we need to make those changes."

But where I've seen that really rub in organizations that are steeped in culture, that is longstanding, as far as that 100-year-old company, you really have to look at, there are some hidden cultural norms that if you're not willing to address and bring out into the light, some of those decisions that you're making to survive and thrive in a very fast-changing world could have significant impact on the employees that ultimately will affect the organization.
