This has been a year of important pivots for me and many of my clients. In Pittsburgh, I have been working with a 30 year old community development intermediary that decided to close its operations and invest the assets to start up a new, innovative enterprise. The board demonstrated incredible courage to make this decision. They faced the reality that a whole new structure is needed to turn the corner on entrenched poverty and blight plaguing particular neighborhoods. They are creating a dynamic network of innovators to infuse these complex challenges with new players, new ideas and most importantly better solutions. I have been privileged to work with these bold risk takers. Their soft style persuaded diverse stakeholders that the time was right to pivot. Their leadership will make a mark on Pittsburgh.
