Mountains, Trails, and Big Ideas: Comfort Zone

All of us have our comfort zone that we prefer to stay in. It’s our comfort bubble.

It’s a word that feels warm, safe and let’s face it, it’s easy. But if we all stayed in our comfort zones, wouldn’t it be holding us back to what true greatness lies ahead?

Moving even slightly out of your comfort zone can prove to be incredibly stressful. It causes us to feel anxious or even fearful.

Change is hard. But everything does change. To increase our business and services, we need to change and adapt to what our clients are asking for.

The comfort zone is the great enemy to creativity; moving beyond it necessitates intuition, which in turn configures new perspectives and conquers fears.

This month Harriet is in AZ working remotely. In her video she shares with us a recipe she found for cactus salad.

This took Harriet way out of her comfort zone. She knows the food she can and likes to eat, trying something new she found challenging and even made her a bit nervous.  Did she like it? Watch the video and find out.

Absence of Trust- Business Coaching

Last month we discussed current stats on what workers are thinking and feeling in their jobs. Those numbers were a bit of a shocker.

Now we are taking this series to the 5 Dysfunctions of a Team.  Sounds negative, but it won’t be.

This month is the Absence of Trust.

The DC – staff relationship is the most primary component to a strong structure. When trust is strong, workplace productivity and efficiency are high.

A strong bond of trust between a manager and employee is important in executing company change.

We all have some form of trust in our staff, but is it the right trust?

We recall last month’s newsletter on the stats of how our employees are feeling.  Refer to the chart below as a reminder.

It’s no surprise when we googled ideas to build trust, we found a surplus of websites and “specialists” all claiming to have the right answer. The bottom line is to build trust with any relationship, be it personal or professional they all said the same thing. COMMUNICATION and HONESTY.

You are part of a “work family”. Most of us spend more time with coworkers than our own families.  Communication and the ability to share thoughts, ideas, and goals are important for all levels.

Carve some time out of your schedule each week to listen to your staff. Go in 15 minutes early, wait and check your email until your next patient break and go out to talk with your staff.  Ask how they are doing, ask about their families. Then you share something.

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. If you find out your staff love flowers, let staff bring them in. Set up a schedule, include yourself on the schedule. Try a favorite snack day, favorite color day, favorite coffee day.  The possibilities are endless.
