“I love this Pivot process. I use it in so many different settings, not only when I have been looking to change careers, I also use it with smaller projects – especially when I get stuck.

An engaging and interactive workshop to boost your career fitness on the corporate jungle gym, exclusively for NAWO Members*.

The notion of ‘moving up the career ladder’ is no longer valid.

Organisational structures have become flatter and the world of work has changed dramatically, disrupting our ability to plot career trajectories – both within organisations and as individuals.

Rarely following a straight line, traversing the career jungle gym can take you, and your staff, up, down, across… even right off the ladder to a new career path.

Welcome to the career jungle gym!

Course Overview

We know it is important to keep engaged and challenged in our careers, but it can be difficult to find the time to explore possibilities or even stop long enough to think about it.

Organisations that are able to keep their people – and keep them engaged and challenged – reap significant rewards:

Based on the book Pivot – the only move that matters is your next move by Jenny Blake, this workshop offers a guide to show you the way and keep you flexible and nimble on the career jungle gym. You will be challenged to reflect on your career, identify what has been successful in the past and understand how to leverage that success for your future moves.

Course Outcome

This interactive workshop will lead you through the 4-step process that you will be able to use at any time in the future. At the end of the program, you will walk away with: 

  • an understanding of how past career changes can be leveraged for future career moves and growth
  • insight into where to focus your next career pivot.
  • an invitation to participate in a 30 day program (which only takes 2 minutes per day to implement)
  • opportunity to select a peer “buddy” to support you and as a prompter to implement self-determined workshop actions
  • a personal action workbook
  • opportunity for reflection and feedback on action progress 30 days post workshop.
