Pivot - The only move that matters is your next one
By Jenny Blake
Careers are not linear, predictable ladders any longer; they are fluid trajectories. No matter our age, life stage, bank account balance, or seniority, we are all being asked to navigate career changes much more frequently than in years past. The average employee tenure in America is just four to five years, and even those roles change dramatically within that time. Our economy now demands that we create businesses and careers based on creativity, growth, and impact. In this dynamic world of work, the only move that matters is your next one.
Drawing from her own experience and those of other successful pivoters, Jenny Blake has created a four-stage process that teaches anyone how to seamlessly and continually:
Double-down on existing strengths, interests, and experiences
Find new opportunities and identify skills to develop without falling prey to analysis-paralysis and compare-and-despair
Run small experiments to determine next steps
Take smart risks to launch with confidence in a new direction
This book is for anyone searching for an answer to the question, "What's next?" and has become the go-to book for innovative organizations to improve retention, communication, and internal mobility—while also helping managers improve their skills in holding 1:1 career conversations with their teams.
