About Webinar

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.

Pivoting is a mindset and a skillset, and it is one we can all get better at. This webinar, based on Former Career Coach Jenny Blake's book PIVOT, 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 webinar 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
