Come in, sit down and make yourself uncomfortable. What? You heard me. My colleague and fellow coach, Marilyn Orr, is talking about getting people out of their comfort zone in this issue of Fresh Ideas.

It's a very interesting concept and we'd love to know what you think about it. Leave a comment after you read the article and let us know!

Please, Allow Me to Make You Uncomfortable
Marilyn Orr
Marilyn Orr
by Marilyn Orr BSc, MA, CEC

There is an "unspoken conspiracy about not wanting to make anyone else uncomfortable, physically, mentally or emotionally," according to David Rock in his book Quiet Leadership.  I read this for the first time years ago and it is still resonating deeply within me.

This commitment to comfort is costing us all quite a bit. There are a lot of conversations that don't happen because of our commitment toYour Comfort Zone not wanting to make the other person uncomfortable. There are many projects that don't get finished, many books that don't get written, many relationships that don't happen.

Over the past five years or so I have become increasingly comfortable with making other people uncomfortable. (If you are one of my friends or clients, you likely already know this!) The barrier I had to overcome was twofold.

Trust is the New Currency for Business Today
As published in the Telegraph-Journal May 17, 2012

Dave Veale's interview with Stephen M.R. Covey, Organizational trust expert, experienced executive, and #1 bestselling author. (read Stephen's impressive biography)

I had the pleasure to sit down with Stephen M.R. Covey (son of Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author of Seven Habits of Highly Effective People) last week to discuss the importance of trust and how it can cut through the noise and clutter in today's economy. Stephen M.R. Covey

It was a huge honour to be given the opportunity to interview Stephen when he was in New Brunswick recently.

He was very generous with his time prior to giving a keynote presentation at the Fredericton Convention Centre. The presentation was hosted by the UNB College of Extended Learning Executive Education Centre.

I was struck by his clear passion and belief in the importance for leaders to inspire trust, so I began our conversation by asking what Stephen had learned about trust through his process of leading an organization, particularly the Covey Leadership Center.
