When was the last time that you pursued a challenge that was outside of your comfort zone?
Arguably, success or failure in these rapidly changing times will be defined by adaptability and a willingness to jump into projects or situations that may feel uncomfortable – all in the name of progress. (personally, getting outside my comfort zone was a major reason why I started Art of Procurement a couple of years ago). It is for that reason that I tagged this article, based on a conversation with ultra-athlete Samantha Gash, as my “must read”.
Samantha, a former corporate lawyer, shares her tips on building the mindset to succeed where others may have failed.
Check out the article, and many, many more (we have a bumper edition!) in this week’s This Week in Procurement
