PIVOT: The Only Move that Matters Is Your Next One

Wednesday, November 9, 2016
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)  |  FREE for WITI Members ($50 Nonmembers)

Presenter: Jenny Blake

No matter your age, life stage, bank account balance, or career level, you can learn how to pivot strategically into your next opportunity. Career change doesn't have to be a crisis, and plateaus don't have to be a problem. In fact, if change is the only constant, now more than ever as it relates to our economy, it behooves us all to get better at it.

Your best chance of success lies right under your feet. By doubling down on what is already working, you can cut through confusion and move more quickly in a new direction. Pivoting is a mindset and a skillset, and it is one we can all get better at. This webinar will resonate with anyone facing the question of what comes next by providing a methodical plan to move forward, one that you can cycle through as many times as necessary.

This webinar will focus on Jenny's Pivot Method, a 4-stage process that will teach you how to:

- Identify your existing strengths, interests and experiences, and define your version of success.
- Scan the horizon for new opportunities, skills, people and opportunities, without falling prey to analysis-paralysis or compare-and-despair.
- Reduce risk by running small experiments that can provide feedback and help determine next steps in your career trajectory.
- Launch with confidence, bolstered by the skills and methodology to adjust seamlessly and continuously as you move in your new direction.

Jenny Blake is an author, career and business strategist and international speaker who helps people organize their brain, move beyond burnout, and build sustainable, dynamic careers they love. Jenny is the author of PIVOT: The Only Move That Matters is Your Next One (Portfolio/Penguin Random House, September 2016), and Life After College (Running Press, 2011), which is based on her blog of the same name. With two years at a technology start-up as the first employee, five years at Google on the Training and Career Development teams, and over five years of running her own business, Jenny combines her love of technology with her superpower of simplifying complexity to help clients through big transitions - often to pivot their career or business.

Today you can find her at JennyBlake.me, where she explores systems at the intersection of mind, body and business. Jenny is based in New York City, where she imagines she's starring in a movie whenever she walks through its crowded streets. Subscribe to the Pivot Podcast and follow her on Twitter @jenny_blake.

The Knowledge Series™ - 5 Keys to Accelerate Your Success

Tuesday, January 17, 2017
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)  |  FREE for WITI Members ($50 Nonmembers)

Presenter: Judy Peebles

In this webinar, you will learn how the 5 Keys of The Knowledge Series™ get you clear on what you want, show you the steps to get there and provide you with the tools you need to succeed. Judy Peebles will discuss:

Vision - What do you want and why do you want it? Clarity is crucial, but so is knowing why you want to accomplish your goal. That is what keeps you going. And make sure that the why is your own - not someone else's why.

Framework - Action Plan. What are you willing to do? What are you unwilling to do? But don't wait until you have the entire plan before you start taking small steps.

Leverage - Support, Systems and Structure, Accountability, Resources - coaching & community. Don't do it alone. Ask for help.

Brilliance - What do you need to learn? We almost always need to learn something to accomplish a new goal. Identifying that need and taking steps to get there are essential to your success.

Breakthrough - What barriers (internal and external) are in your way? Often the internal barriers are the most daunting, especially the ones we are not even aware of. Don't let your beliefs about yourself, the world or anything else sabotage your vision.

Judy Peebles is the creator of The Knowledge Series™, High Heeled Haven™, The Journaling Jenius™ and Journaling Jems™.
