Jenny Blake - How To Pivot Your Way To Your Dream Career
1 day ago
In episode 4 of our "Unleashing Superpowers" season, we are talking with the wonderful Jenny Blake, business and career strategist, international speaker and author of "Pivot: The Only Move That Matters Is Your Next One".
Jenny's motto is "If change is the only constant, let's get better at it." She wants people to have careers and lives that they truly love but understands how difficult change can be. So Jenny has made it her work to find the practical strategies that help people to not only survive change but to positively thrive from it.
On a personal level, we love Jenny's warmth, compassion and generosity. She gets the reality of pivots having not only helped thousands of people through change, but having been many pivots of her own. She has the rare gift of not only making change doable, but downright desirable. Jenny is an absolutely true-hearted member of the Maverick tribe.
In this episode, some of the highlights of our conversation include:
How nothing will teach you more about yourself than entrepreneurship and creative ventures
The kinds of pivots that people are going through, either through choice or circumstance
The trend of ‘high-net growth’ people who are not willing to stay put
How people are becoming more fluid in their careers in and out of companies
Career development as ‘downloading apps’ rather than ‘climbing the ladder’
The 4- stage PIVOT formula to make change while minimising risk
How to use small experiments to check out potential pivot moves
The ’30/30’ and ‘mentor from afar’ methods for learning from other people who are already doing what you want to do
The kinds of pilots you can do if you are in an organisation
“Build first, courage later” as a way to build momentum
How to fund your pivot - money, bridge income and runways
Why the next step you take is the most important one
