Season: 1 / Episode: 9

During the conversation, Neha and Marie-Louise discuss stretch assignments and getting out of one’s comfort zone as a necessary part of career development.

Neha refers to Senninger’s (2000) model about learning zones, which differentiates between a comfort zone, a learning zone, and a panic zone. Similar to Senniger’s model is Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s flow theory, which highlights the power of experiences finding that balance between the challenges of our current situation and the skills we have to meet those challenges.
