The Comfort Zone Upset

July 11, 2023

Caffeinated Thought of the Week:

I’m meeting with a friend next week and I want to encourage him to step out of his comfort zone. Here is my plan of attack in 3 easy steps:

  1. Start by throwing genuine compliments his way and let him know that he is making a real impact.
  2. Ask some thought-provoking questions like what’s on your mind about ___, and do you feel like you’re leveraging your strengths in that area?
  3. Ask if I can help in any way?

Quote of the Week:

“Listen if you want to be heard” - John Wooden

Podcast of the Week:

Craig Groeschel Leadership podcast: Q&A with Vanessa Van Edwards: How to Communicate with Charisma
Top Takeaways:

  • Charisma is contagious, that doesn’t always mean more positivity.
  • There are 3 levels of connection (general traits, personal concerns, self-narrative) and the questions we ask are critical to moving deeper in a relationship.
