The Monster of Anesi - Learning to Stretch Beyond Comfort! (R)


The exercise in this module can be completed in about 25 minutes. In total, allowing for discussion, we recommend allowing about 55 minutes for this module.

• To help participants understand the ability for fear to debilitate.
• To explore what happens if we continue to avoid new situations that scare us.
• To explore the principle of Comfort Zone, Learning Zone and Panic Zone, and the function of each.

Group Size:
This module can be used with individuals as well as groups of up to 12 participants.

Useful For:
Staff at all levels.

You'll Need:
• To practise reading the story through several times to familiarise yourself before the session. (If your level of membership allows, there is an audio recording of the story in Trainers’ Library, if you prefer not to read it aloud yourself.)

This module looks at the impact of fear on our ability to achieve goals and fulfil our potential. It’s a useful addition to any training around personal development, adaptability and resilience. It also looks at the role of the Comfort Zone in learning and is therefore also important to trainers, or those taking on a people development role. In addition, it’s a useful module to include in any topic specific training, where fear of a new situation might hold learners back from achieving their full potential.

Remote/Virtual Delivery:
Remote Delivery requires a system that as an absolute minimum provides the following functionality:
• Face-to-face discussion.
• Share screen.
• Chat.
• Share files.

In addition, we strongly recommend using a system that provides for:
• Breakout Rooms.
