The purpose of Pivot Point is to empower mid-career, high-potential women through building winning career game plans. Even with more women than men graduating from college and becoming middle managers, few make it to the C-suite or to corporate boards. The glass ceiling is still very much in place. In a series of interviews with mid-career, high-potential women, Julie Kratz discovered that women want more actionable tools to implement positive change.
Thus, the idea was born. Let’s take a long look into that daunting glass ceiling and, in-stead of thinking of ways to break or shatter it, let’s use it as a mirror to our advantage.
Pivot Point is built on the principle of reflection, and sharing our reflections. The power of reflection has layers. We must first know our authentic selves, find and express our sources of confidence, and build our winning career game plan. Then, sharing our reflec-tion requires us to connect with those who will help us achieve our career game plan, ask for it, and continuously improve our reflections through leading with influence. It’s like a circle, once we have completed the process and lead with influence, others follow suit and begin their own Pivot Point journeys.
