How do you lead successfully? And more importantly, how do you lead in a way that benefits yourself and everyone around you? Join host Todd and guest Jason Feifer as they discuss how change can spur growth, the rewards that come with pushing away your comfort zone, the concept of “comfortability,” and more.
Jason Feifer is the editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine, author of the book Build For Tomorrow (out September 2022), a startup advisor, and host of two podcasts: Build For Tomorrow (yes, same name as the book) a show about the smartest solutions to our most misunderstood problems; and Problem Solvers, about entrepreneurs overcoming the odds in their business. Prior to Entrepreneur, Jason has worked as an editor at Men’s Health, Fast Company, Maxim, and Boston magazine, and has written about business and technology for the Washington Post, Slate, New York, and others. Jason’s previous book, a romantic comedy that he wrote with his wife called Mr. Nice Guy, is currently being developed for television.
When change inevitably happens, train yourself to see the gains instead of the loss. This is when you will feel more in control. A vital step in this equation is to not extrapolate out to the worst
possible situation. It is more than likely never going to come to pass. There is always opportunity and growth in change.
I loved Jason’s question to ask in change moments…”how can this be put to good use?” What a great question to change your perspective and see those gains. He told several examples from history that we can learn from and avoid the traps people got stuck in.
- Technology isn’t threatening. However, it is so important to build a bridge of familiarity to create comfortability just like the woman’s voice in the elevator. Leading with empathy is the road you need to take to be successful.
