REACH Interview Series: Jenny Blake

The Reach Interview Series is an informal dialogue between Andy Molinsky and respected thought leaders about the challenges of stepping outside your comfort zone, especially in the process of developing yourself as a leader.

Today’s guest is Jenny Blake, who is just simply a dynamo! Jenny is a prolific writer, speaker, career and business strategist and the author of the fabulous book Pivot: The Only Move That Matters is Your Next One. She helps people organize their brains, move beyond burnout, and build sustainable, dynamic careers they love. During our chat, Jenny tells the story of stepping outside her comfort zone during a major career move from the relative comfort – or at least predictability and prestige – of working at Google to the uncertainty of starting her own entrepreneurial endeavor. Jenny also has some fabulous advice for young people interested in developing leadership potential. Hope you have a listen!
