1. Make the most of your comfort zone.
m, your tendency is to favor: CHARISMA, SOCIABILITY and INSIGHT .
Because you employ it more often, a mindframe in your comfort zone will strongly influence your behavior. You'll find using it comfortable and enjoyable, so anything you handle in your comfort zone will be done with more enthusiasm and persistence. Whatever you get involved in, you'll do it well and accomplish a lot.
To build on your success:
Learn to be aware when you're operating in your comfort zone
When working in one of your comfortable mindframes, push yourself to higher levels of performance
Seek other projects, roles or jobs that require you to use your comfort zone
2. Stretch beyond your comfort zone.
You're less likely to use: CONTROL, SENSITIVITY, PROACTIVITY, LOGIC and ORDER .
Regardless of the job or task at hand, you won't be able to operate in your comfort zone all the time. So when the situation requires it, use one of the mindframes outside your comfort zone—even if you have to "stretch" to do so.
"Stretching" means making an extra effort to do what needs to be done, even if you consider it unfamiliar, uncomfortable or unpleasant. You don't have to change who you are. Just make a special exception to your usual pattern. Rather than neglect a requirement, make a deliberate decision to get the task done, whether you're inclined to do it or not. Once you've taken care of business, you can return to doing what's comfortable.
In addition, consider these methods for accomplishing tasks that are beyond your comfort zone:
Teaming—Make an effort to get along or work more smoothly with people who favor mindframes that you don't
Skills—Gain experience with techniques
Procedures—Follow job aids, menus and other guides
Devices—Employ technology to support your efforts
