Watch now (2 min) | We use the term ‘pivot’ so casually and yet it takes great courage to do an about-turn. Our belief in the value of what we have to offer is usually the first thing to change – then we have to figure out the ‘what’ and ‘how’?
When we learn about people who have had a complete change in their careers – or companies that have magically turned themselves into something else, it all sounds rather easy. We tend to glamorise the success stories without a real understanding of what it took to flip the switch and change direction.
There is almost always a crisis of confidence just before a pivot, accompanied by a tangible sense of loss as our belief in the value of our core offering alters. And in that moment, the stark realisation that we have so much to offer – we just need to change our approach.
If the COVID months have taught us anything, it’s about liberating ourselves from who we thought we should be. The careers we should have, the ladders we need to climb, the products, services and offerings we should deliver into the markets we believed were real, true and solid.
When we have that invaluable moment of clarity, wonderful things start to happen. We free ourselves from the ‘just work harder’, ‘get better at doing it’ hustle, grit and grind. We begin to tap into possibility thinking, actively seeking ‘now what’ ‘and what else’ and ‘what’s next’?
If you’re ready to pivot…
Or have already pivoted, but have a sense that it’s not quite right, join us on Tuesday the 18th for 90-magic-minutes. We’re coming together with our Collective Wisdom to support one another to take courageous action.
