The intentional strategic rules of engagement implemented in The Global PIVOT Institute, are deeply rooted in the creation and implementation of a uniquely designed 5-Step methodological approach. Its fundamental mission rests in establishing a uniquely positive culture by changing narratives, through service and education, insofar as how we approach issues and challenges that adversely impact us in such areas involving social, public, economic, political, and technological policies.
The five pillars upon which this objective is built is globally known as The Power of a Positive Pivot (The Triple P Methodology) – P/positive; I/issue; V/visualize; O/ownership; and T/triumphant. This Triple P Methodology has earned him the title of “Pivotologist.” This newly formulated ground-breaking phenomenon is known as “Pivotology.” Pivotology is the study of the heart and one’s behavior arising therefrom. It is the intimate understanding of the implementation of our conscious thought processes, including the utilization of our feelings and emotions that arise from these conscious thoughts. Further, it involves that ability to truly comprehend what drives, motivates and even inspires us to making the decisions we make. It is the practical discipline of immense decision-making analysis, crossing the boundaries between the heart (that which conceives), the mind (that which believes), and the body (that which manifest what has been conceived and believed) into what can, in reality, be achieved.
This signature methodology has been successfully introduced at Washburn University its School of Law, throughout numerous Public High Schools, all in Topeka Kansas, The Boys and Girls Club of America, Jack & Jill of America, Kempar Travel Diaries of Nairobi Kenya (for the 2023 Inaugural “Kenya Self-Empowerment Leadership Forum”), and the list increases exponentially just about daily.
