About the EventAdventures by the Book™ is pleased to partner with Watermark for a PIVOT: The Only Move that Matters is Your Next One Adventure with Jenny Blake, author, career & business strategist, and international speaker who helps people organize their brain, move beyond burnout and build sustainable, dynamic careers they love.
Now, more than ever, we need to navigate career changes deftly and frequently. In her latest book, PIVOT: The Only Move That Matters Is Your Next, career transition expert (and former Googler) Jenny Blake shows us how to understand and recognize when it’s time to pivot, embrace uncertainty in exchange for risk and reward and double-down on our strengths and assets. Careers aren't linear, predictable ladders; they're fluid trajectories. The average employee tenure in the U.S. is just four or five years, and even those job roles often change dramatically within that time frame. No matter your age, bank account balance or seniority, you need to be able to pivot into your next opportunity so you don't get left behind. Drawing from her own experience and those of other successful pivoters, Jenny has created a four-step process – the Pivot Method – which can teach anyone how to:
- Identify existing strengths, interests and experiences
- Find new opportunities and identify skills to develop without falling prey to paralysis by analysis
- Launch successfully in a new direction, while staying primed for the next move
