Today’s 5-minute hack is from Kathy Mazzarella, CEO of the 9,000-employee-strong Graybar, where she started her career at 19. She actually started working there completely on accident because she took a wrong turn going for an interview for another company.

According to Kathy, many leaders get stuck on auto-pilot mode which keeps them from growing and developing as leaders. After watching today’s video you’ll never want to stay in your comfort zone again!
