You know, these days the word “pivot” gets thrown around a lot. It’s become quite overused! But let me tell you, having the courage to pivot can really be a game changer when it comes to your leadership.
Let me share a personal story with you. My son David asked me if we could take care of his dog Gabbi, and just like that, we went from being empty-nesters to having a very energetic puppy in our lives. It completely shook up my routine, and at first, I resisted the change. But soon enough, I realized that this was my new reality. Gabbi forced me to get more focused on the things that really matter and eliminate any wasteful activity in my life. With her needing attention, I found myself taking more walks and pausing in my day to prevent any chaos that might ensue if she gets bored or ignored. This shift gave me more time to reflect on the quality of my life and what truly matters.
During this time of reflection, I made some important decisions. I put off writing my book, took a break from redoing my website, and instead, I became laser-focused on my well-being, client work, and making meaningful connections. I also dove headfirst into developing a YouTube strategy to reach a wider audience. Let me tell you, I am so excited about these initiatives, and my team is on board too. Since shifting my focus, I’ve noticed that the stress I used to feel is slowly melting away, and new opportunities are starting to present themselves.
I’m sharing all of this with you because I’m genuinely thrilled about how I feel, and I want to help you feel the same way. I want you to feel energized and excited about what you do, for yourself, your friends, your family, and your community. I want you to find purpose in your work and make a real difference in the lives of others.
Recently, I had a client who was at a crossroad in their career. They were holding onto their current pursuits, but deep down, they knew they needed a change. That’s when they reached out to me for guidance. We carefully analyzed their needs, desires, and passions. Through our discussions, I proposed ways for them to realize their value and identify where they should apply it. It didn’t take long for them to recognize a different path that would lead to a more fulfilling life, both financially and in terms of purposeful work and life balance. When our engagement came to an end, they felt more confident than ever about the new direction they had taken.
I want this same sense of fulfillment and joy for all of you. I want you to have more fun and spend time doing the things you love. And most importantly, I want you to embrace the mindset that pivoting often can open up incredible possibilities and bring more joy into your life.
So, remember, when you have the courage to pivot, your C-Suite leadership skills will not only be recognized but will also bring you greater joy and satisfaction in your work.
Do you have challenges with pivoting? Do you avoid leaning into pivoting? Worse yet, are you a leader who has team members who lack these critical skills? Let me partner with you. I’m here to listen and perhaps we can have a conversation.
