Did you know that 71% of business owners in the UK strongly agree or agree that one of the ways to cope with uncertainty is when they take control of what they CAN control, and this supports them to pivot2thrive.

What do I mean when I say you can choose to pivot2thrive in life and work?

In this blog I am going to share with you how you too can ensure that you are choosing to pivot2thrive more of the time.  

Research (BHC, 2020-2021) highlights that leaders who take a step back from the Business As Usual, to understand uncertainty and change impacts on themselves and their work, give the advantage of a strategic toolkit to manage self and work. This enables them to develop resilience, coping mechanisms, resourcefulness, and aligned processes ready to deploy during and as we emerge from the ‘new normal’ that we find ourselves in.

Think about successful, characterful, competent, trustworthy and sometimes entrepreneurial people like the late Steve Jobbs; legendary CEO of PepsiCo Roger Enrico; Barack Obama; Steve Bennett former CEO of Intuit; Serena Williams. What do they all have in common …? They all attribute their continued, sustainable success on having mentors and coaches. They certainly have thrived.

‘Each taught me important lessons about team-building, collaboration, workplace politics, managing time and priorities, and how to remain confident in the face of challenges’ (the late Steve Jobbs)

Actions Taken as a Result of leaders who have chosen to pivot2thrive

  • Development and optimisation of personal and organisational strategies enabling leadership that can thrive rather than just survive during uncertain times
  • Equipping themselves, their teams, and companies to stride forward powerfully
  • Taking ownership and in doing so increasing their influence of opportunities that flow to them and their teams
  • Seeking out and building strong collaborations, alliances and support structures. Knowing that thriving comes from a shared collaborative approach rather than just going it alone.

‘Coaching taught me not to go it alone, collaborative working all the way’ (Oprah Winfrey)
