If you are a marketing, market research, strategy, pricing, or product professional, that may be your pivot
Jenny Blake, the co-creator of Google’s career development mentorship program published a new book, Pivot, discussing lessons for pivoting one’s career. “When people are guided by fear or what they think they should do, it keeps them stuck in unfulfilling jobs,” she says.
We know many CI managers stuck in doing information fetching tasks who are afraid to be wrong by reinventing their job. They choose to be frustrated.
We refuse to encourage frustration. We refuse to “train” people to do meaningless info searches and archiving and think that will make a difference in their success.
We teach you to reinvent your job. Blake advises managers to have a “project-based purpose” – find projects at work that excite you and make you feel like you’re causing an impact. We give you the wisdom to find such projects. Or invent them.
After taking our courses, our alumni tell us they acquired a whole new perspective on what intelligence could do. Not all of them, not every time, but enough to make us believe we have an impact.
No one else has this impact on careers. And it’s not just CI careers- the retraining of perspectives on strategic intelligence helps marketing, strategy, business development, and project/product managers to have an impact. In fact, every market facing manager needs to reframe his or her perspective on competition, strategy and intelligence.
Jon Acuff, author of Do Over says: “It’s not a matter of if you’ll need to pivot your career, it’s a matter of when.”
Let us prove to you that just taking a few courses from our innovative curriculum can be exactly the pivot you need. If you read what our alumni say, you realize this is no hype. We are the pivot. Come join us November 4-8, 2019 in Manhattan, New York City to see for yourself, or regret being stuck as a data search technician.
