There are three zones of leadership that impact our development as leaders.
The Comfort Zone. The comfort zone is where we spend most of our time. As the name implies it is the place of comfort, it is safe, easy and predictable.
The Learning Zone. The learning zone is the most important, this is the space between your comfort zone and your danger zone. This is where you push the boundaries of your existing skills and experience. This is where real learning and growth takes place.
The Danger Zone. The danger zone is the place where you are stretched too far, over-stressed and unable to lead.
