comfort-zoneExpand Your Comfort Zone!

We all have our comfort zone, a place where we feel comfortable and safe. We are at ease in our routine surroundings, job, community, and relationships.  But here’s the catch - in our ever-changing world, life inside our comfort zone will still be tossed and turned. If we are not prepared to change with the pace of our world, we will find ourselves stuck, or worse, left behind.

 Here’s a good example. Depending on your age, you have had to make changes to the way you listen to music: records, 8-tracks, cassettes, CD’s,MP-3’s. Or what about the phone you have: rotary, push button, remote, cell, and who knows what is next?

We all realize that the world is constantly changing – perhaps faster than most of us desire. So, to be comfortable moving forward, we can engage in some simple habits that prepare us to think and live outside our comfort zone – even if just a little bit at a time i.e. “move a muscle, change a thought”.

  1. Ask these questions: a) What would you do if you could do anything? b) What would you like to learn about? c) What small changes would you like to make in your life?
  1. Change your routine everyday: a) Try a new restaurant or menu item; b) Take a new route to work or school; c) Add a few morning or evening rituals.
  2. Experience something different on a weekly basis: a)  Visit a museum, art store, antique mall, etc.; b) Take a class for personal or professional development; c) Explore a new walking trail or park.

 These simple exercises can help you to stretch your comfort zone. And as we get out of our routine and try on new attitudes, behaviors and perspectives, our thinking grows, our experiences grow, and life grows too.

With the WorkLife Method, we approach change from the perspective that everyone is unique.  We offer coaching and support to help you identify the unique qualities of your personal comfort zone. Contact us to expand your comfort zone and be ready for change!

I help individuals, teams and organizations enhance communications and improve executive presence by providing strategies for management and leadership development, career growth, and work/life balance.

My expertise is helping women in transition give VOICE to their work and life. The acronym VOICE addresses Values, Opportunity, Individuality, Commitment and Empowerment. If you’re ready to get vocal and have a clear plan in place for your sales and marketing strategy, develop leadership skills, know who you are as a leader, then connect with WorkLife for Women and be heard.

Our core competencies in personal development use an array of assessment technologies to realign individual performance through an understanding of passion, and strengths and motivations.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with several individuals and organizations including The Columbus Dispatch, KBW Inc., Medical Mutual of Ohio, Nationwide Insurance, Nationwide Children's Hospital, New York Hospital/Cornell University Medical Center, NetJets, Yale-New Haven Hospital, The Ohio State University Department of Continuing Education, NARMS, The Limited, Pratt & Whitney, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and Action for Children.
