What are the behaviours in others that make you uncomfortable? Withdrawal? Anger? Talking too much?

Often, people label such behaviours as bad, wrong or unprofessional. What if these behaviours are simply a sign of something wanting to happen?

On the edge

When you observe strong emotional responses, it can mean someone has found the edge of their comfort zone. As a leader, you have a choice to make:

You can suppress the emotional response, which will likely push them back into their comfort zone.

Or, you can help them explore the thing that is making them so uncomfortable. Don’t forget this new place is probably an area of growth for them.

Your choice.

You’ve got this.
