Getting Unstuck: Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone – A Transformation Story with Tom Dietzler
When have you ever been asked – or been forced – to move out of your comfort zone – the arena in which you've historically operated? What did you discover about yourself and your strength repertoire in the process? What lessons did you learn about life? In this episode, we meet Tom Dietzler who suddenly found himself engaged in two roles that were very different from the one he had previously played in life.
• Why it’s important to know and be in a position to utilize your strengths.
• What Tom saw as his big shift, his internal transformation and personal awakening.
• How Tom’s experience as the band chaperone
influenced his administrator role in his church,
and vice versa.
After listening to the episode:
What are your strengths, and how are they or aren’t being leveraged where you work?
Tom made the comment “Preparation is important, but you don’t have to expect perfection for you to have an impact.” How does that comment square with your personal outlook on “perfection”?
In Tom’s role as his church’s administrator and as the band’s chaperone, he noted how helping others succeed is what’s good for the organization. Where do you mirror that concept – or struggle with it – at work?
