One of the most important realizations we as safety leaders must come to realize; our jobs require us to be in uncomfortable situations...often. If you're struggling with this, be encouraged that you're certainly not alone!

Do uncomfortable things and embrace the awkward. Just don't forget to do it with grace and humility.
