Finding clarity often requires us to push beyond our boundaries and step outside our comfort zone. However, going beyond our boundaries comes with fears and maybe even the risk of failure.

When is a good time to push our boundaries? How do we step outside our comfort zone? What about failures? How do we prepare ourselves to face the emotions that may come with stepping outside our comfort zone?

These are the questions that our guest Associate Professor Dr. Ritesh Chugh (CQ University) and interviewer Nischal Niroula (JCI Eastern) will be discussing in this Career Talk episode.

This episode is hosted by Dr Suzi Chen (Resilient Leadership Academy) and Shaun Ng (JCI Eastern).
