Staying Out Of The “Danger Zone”

by | The Accidental Creative

We each have danger zones we have to watch out for in the course of our work. They can be particular habits or patterns we fall into when we go into “coast mode” or areas or situations where we are likely to get irritated and short-circuit collaborative relationships.

The problem is that these “danger zones” are often invisible to us, because we can’t step outside of our own experience in order to see how we are actually behaving or engaging in the work. Thus, it’s possible to drift off course over time simply because we aren’t aware that we’ve set the wrong bearing.

On this episode, we share about the importance of avoiding the temptation to hide in the shadows, and a few strategies for bringing yourself fully and freely to the work you do.
