Leaving your Comfort Zone to Add Value across New Sectors

As Executives & Non-Executives – and as people – we often like to stay in our comfort zones, in both business and life. However, taking a leap outside of your comfort zone is a proven way to experience new opportunities and add new value.

Our recent webinar explored how you can do this as a professional and for the health of your business – adding a fresh perspective by breaking out of familiar environments to experience the challenges faced by in different sectors.

In today’s era, agility, flexibility and our ability to adapt and hit the ground defines the value and impact that we can have. Whether you are looking to broaden your exposure & add new types of value, or seeking to add a fresh perspective to your current business, rest assured that the opportunities are out there.

The experiences that have shaped our careers over the years and enabled us to hone our skills can readily transfer across sectors, creating exciting opportunities to work with a diverse range of new colleagues.

3 key themes covered by our speaker, Steve Burnett:

  1. Re-energising to take on a new market / sector
  2. Lessons to learn in how to make an immediate impact outside your comfort zone and hit the ground running.
  3. Keep things fresh, ensuring you become dispensable. Moving on and futureproofing your business without you
