Beware your comfort zone, leadership expert says

3D Team Leadership Arrow Concept

The term “comfort zone” can evoke some nice, cozy feelings of safety and security.

Beware your comfort zone, however. As Colorado leadership and motivation expert Jim McLaughlin explains in a series of blog posts, it robs people of their potential. It can take yours.

This presents a special challenge for leaders, who must move other people beyond where they are comfortable to reach ever higher levels of achievement.

The three-part series is adapted from Jim’s book, The Six Things: Leading People to Outstanding Achievement. It is available in paperback and in ebook format for Kindle and other readers.

As the book’s editor, I have a pretty good idea of what’s coming in Parts 2 and 3 of the “comfort zone” series. You may be surprised to learn how a comfort zone changes over time. I certainly was.
