Andy Molinsky wasn’t always comfortable with being uncomfortable. He often struggled with moving out of his comfort zone, and he would go out of his way to make excuses to find reasons why he shouldn’t and wouldn’t stray from the path his life was already on. But with time, he learned how to stretch himself beyond his comforts and challenge himself to embrace the paths he wasn’t familiar with. His new book, Reach, is all about helping others do the same, and he discussed those strategies with us. Take a listen to learn how you can step out of your comfort zone and be okay with it!


Andy Molinsky is a Professor at Brandeis University’s International Business School, with a joint appointment in the Department of Psychology. His work helps people develop the insights and courage necessary to act outside their personal and cultural comfort zones when doing important, but challenging, tasks in work and life. He is the author of Reach: A New Strategy to Help You Step Outside Your Comfort Zone, Rise to the Challenge and Build Confidence
