departure, awakening (context!!!)
but often requires nonliteral translation: In your context this could refer to enthusiasm for a specific new beginning (like launching a new project) or a more general enthusiastic pioneering spirit, enjoying breaking the rules to cross new frontiers, pursuing innovation, out-of-the-box thinking to trigger new paradigms or business initiatives etc.
