Choosing Comfort →

Brené Brown, talking with Krista Tippett:

Yeah, make a note right now. He or she who chooses comfort — over courage and facilitating real conversations in towns and cities and synagogues and areas who need it; when you choose your own comfort over trying to bring people together, and you’re a leader, either a civic leader or a faith leader, your days of relevance are numbered.

This applies equally to leaders in organisations. A great quote from a fantastic interview.
