Well, I'm not sure what you mean by pivot, but if you'll clarify it I can try and give you some pointers..
As for standing still, whenever he moves or takes a step back him up 5-10 steps in a bit of a hurry, then ask him to stand still again. After a while he'll understand that it's a lot of work to misbehave and it's easier just to do what you say and stand still...or are you on him when he does all this? Even if you are on him, work with him until he does what you ask on the ground before asking him under saddle.
