The Management Tip of the Day : Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

THE MANAGEMENT TIP OF THE DAY: Harvard Business Review

February 18, 2014

Moving beyond our comfort zones is how we can best learn and grow. 
To develop the courage to take a leap, and the skill and ability to actually pull it off: 
  • Understand what’s in it for you to motivate yourself. Brainstorm how working on this tough behavior — networking, perhaps, or public speaking — can advance your career or help you reach other goals.
  • Then, customize a plan to take control of a situation instead of being overwhelmed by it. If, for example, you’re an introvert who dreads networking events, instead of feeling pressured to meet everyone, focus on a few people and actually try to get to know them, or aim to make initial contacts with the goal of following up in a more comfortable setting.
