Beyond the Pivot: The three best tools the best teams are using to build a new future.
For months, the word “pivot” was the most popular word in the virtual halls of every successful company.
It spoke to the need to quickly respond to an unexpected crisis.
It promised a quick solution to a challenge that would last for weeks, months, or at the longest a whole quarter. But the challenge was not temporary, it stretched beyond our expectations and a new solution was needed to build the new future.
The best companies looked beyond the pivot and developed three tools that will steer them on the road ahead.
Jon Acuff is the New York Times Bestselling author of six books, including his most recent Wall Street Journal #1 Bestseller, "Finish: Give yourself the gift of done."
When he's not writing, Acuff can be found on a stage, as one of INC's Top 100 Leadership Speakers. He's spoken to hundreds of thousands of people at conferences, colleges, and companies around the world including FedEx, Nissan, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin, Chick-fil-A, Nokia, and Comedy Central. Known for his insights wrapped in humor, in 2018 Acuff tried his hand at pure comedy. His two night, 60-minute set at Zanies, the largest comedy club in Nashville, sold out in 72 hours.
For over 20 years he's also helped some of the biggest brands tell their story, including The Home Depot, Bose, Staples, and the Dave Ramsey Team. His fresh perspective on life has given him the opportunity to write for Reader's Digest, Fast Company, The Harvard Business Review, and Time Magazine. When he's not writing for major media companies, he's appearing on them, with spots on CNN, Fox News, Good Day LA, and several other key outlets.
