Pivoting On Your Core

An evening with Trish Gorman, PhD

85 Broads Chicago is pleased to host Dr. Trish Gorman on April 9th for a program on building your personal brand. #Investinyourself and register for this unique event!

Pivoting On Your Core

Are you worried that your skills are obsolete? Are you thinking about refreshing or re-booting your career in new directions? Take a lesson from successful organizations and instead of attempting total re-invention, pivot on your core. Using your existing skills and assets as a foundation, pivoting enables you to move to cover new territory and to reposition yourself to take advantage of opportunities ahead. The most successful firms change to meet new challenges and serve customers in new ways, but do not change their fundamental focus. Similarly, successful individuals transition from one role to another by simultaneously embracing their past and exploring new directions.

Trish Gorman will share both organizational and individual examples of successful transitions based on pivoting from the core. You’ll have the chance to contemplate your own core skills and discuss options for your own pivot strategy.
