260. How to Pivot as a Leader in the Face of Change

Sep 7, 2020 | 0 comments

Socrates said, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

The truth is that change is hard—especially uninvited change. It is often that change that pushes you in directions you would have otherwise never explored, and that’s where growth happens.

Donna Miller’s proven business model of over 25 years was suddenly tested in ways that she couldn’t have imagined. As she was forced to double-down and reexamine every area of what once was, she did more than rebuild her business strategy — she also pivoted her leadership approach, and the results have been extraordinary.
