PIVOT: The Only Move that Matters is Your Next One
Date: Oct. 12, 2016
Time: 12:00pm – 1:00pm PT
Presenter: Jenny Blake
Moderator: Ruth Stergiou, CEO, Invent Your Future
No matter your age, life stage, bank account balance, or career level, you can learn how to pivot strategically into your next opportunity. Career change doesn’t have to be a crisis, and plateaus don’t have to be a problem. In fact, if change is the only constant, now more than ever as it relates to our economy, it behooves us all to get better at it.
Your best chance of success lies right under your feet. By doubling down on what is already working, you can cut through confusion and move more quickly in a new direction. Pivoting is a mindset and a skillset, and it is one we can all get better at. This workshop will resonate with anyone facing the question of what comes next by providing a methodical plan to move forward, one that you can cycle through as many times as necessary.
This interactive webinar focuses on Jenny’s Pivot Method, a 4-stage process that will teach you how to:
- Identify your existing strengths, interests and experiences, and define your version of success.
- Scan the horizon for new opportunities, skills, people and opportunities, without falling prey to analysis-paralysis or compare-and-despair.
- Reduce risk by running small experiments that can provide feedback and help determine next steps in your career trajectory.
- Launch with confidence, bolstered by the skills and methodology to adjust seamlessly and continuously as you move in your new direction.
