Episode 27: Taking your leadership to new heights by stepping out of your comfort zone


Taking Your Leadership to New Heights by Stepping out of Your Comfort Zone

with Kat Rippy

Leader friends, I am so excited to talk to you today about something most leaders tend to lean on: comfort zones.

It can be easy to stick to what you know, especially as leaders. You know what they say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

But the truth is, getting too comfortable can be very dangerous. It can impede growth, result in close-mindedness, and prevent you from reaching your full leadership potential.

Tune in to this week’s episode to see why stepping outside of your comfort zone can take your leadership to new heights.

Check out the episode below:

Highlights of this episode include:

  • Kat’s family experience that inspired this podcast
  • Why stepping outside of your comfort zone is critical for leadership success
  • The payoff that comes with stepping out of your comfort zone
  • … and more!
