How a stable foundation supports successful business decisions

“I don’t know what to do! What move should I make next?” 

Planning for your career, and determining your future strategy, can be a daunting task. I’d like to share some helpful advice I received from a fellow LinkedIn Learning instructor, Jenny Blake.

Jenny is also the author of the successful book, Pivot: The Only Move that Matters is Your Next One, and an expert at business strategy and planning. Her advice on how to make those intimidating strategic decisions is simple, and based on a fun analogy of a basketball player!

Before you pivot, you must start with having one solid foot on the ground. How? By defining your stable foundation!

Jenny defines that as knowing what already works. This gives you a stable foothold so that your other one is free to pivot your options securely.  

Watch the video to hear Jenny explain how to create that secure foundation for making successful business decisions going forward.

I also highly recommend following her on LinkedIn and checking out her LinkedIn Learning courses

Thank you for an enlightening conversation, Jenny!
