043 – The New Norm of Career Pivots

The longitudinal path that we used to follow of a 30 year trajectory of climbing the corporate ladder is dead. Now, it’s all about the Pivot. Today our good friend Jenny Blake, author of PIVOT: The Only Move That Matters Is Your Next One, joins us to discuss this very topic. During our lively 40 minute chat, we touch upon:

  • Why a Pivot is Plan A, not Plan B
  • Is the word ‘career’ dead?
  • Should we throw out the five year plan?
  • The Pivots Jenny has made
  • The four stages of the Pivot Method (Plant, Scan, Pilot and Launch)
  • Why ‘how’ is a dangerous word to use too early in the Pivot process

So, what’s your next move going to be?
