By May 23, 2018 No Comments

You know that early-stage companies pivot, in search of that elusive product/market fit. Looking for a business model that works.

But do you know that – equally important – your people need to pivot as well?

In search of the career, the specific role, and the home to do the best work of their life. People need to find their strengths & what’s working, in order to figure out what comes next.

And as leaders, one of our most vital functions is to help our employees do this.

So, I found an expert on how it’s done.

Jenny Blake is the author, career strategist and international speaker who helps people organize their brain, move beyond burnout & build sustainable careers they love.

She’s the author of “Pivot: The Only Move That Matters is Your Next One” which won an award for Axiom Best Business Book in the careers category.

After 2 years at a technology start-up, she spent 5 years at Google in Training & Career Development.

So she’s helped a ton of people pivot. I’ll bet she can help you too.
