Fear Based Environment

(What Is)

Today’s workplace is often a fear based environment. It stems from things like:

  • Fear of authority figures’ “power over” them and their destiny.
  • Fear of inadvertently committing a career limiting move.
  • Fear of being caught in the  crossfire of territorial or empire building managers.
  • Fear of making a mistake or failing in a “failure is not an option” environment.
  • Fear of loss in pay increase, bonus, promotion or anything they feel they’ve earned but is left in the hands of subjective decision makers. 
Fear Based Environment
Fear Based Environment

At a time when businesses need creativity, innovation, and fast action, many managers destroy motivation by:

  • Being inconsistent
  • Playing the blame game
  • Hoarding information
  • Publicly humiliating their people
  • Rewarding subservience over service
  • Exerting excessive control

3 Reasons Why Change Efforts Fail

Fear

The fear of negative consequences is one of the biggest reasons people resist change.

Ignored

When concerns and frustrations are ignored, people feel helpless, give up, and take on victim behavior.

Pushed

When people feel pushed, forced or threatened to change for reasons they don't understand or can't see any benefits in, you can expect resistance, push back, and sabotage.

Capabilities

New technology will eliminate routine tasks. The role of professionals will expand and require higher level thinking and sense making for their organizations to remain relevant.

Increased mental dexterity is required to face the challenges ahead. You can’t get this type of education in school, at a workshop or conference. It’s an intentionally lived experience.

To be effective everyone needs to live the experience at the same time. Working and learning together and from each other, in real-time, in the work flow, every day. Focusing on individual personal and professional growth as needed to expand their mental complexity.

Safe working environments are required for our mental capacities to grow. Trusting relationships where we can address misperceptions, cognitive bias, and limiting beliefs.

Once a sound foundation is in place, the organization will be in a position to embrace uncertainty, face reality and expand its capabilities at the rate of change. The organization’s trajectory can’t be left to chance, it must be guided to get results.

A multi-purpose platform that provides anonymity and is hosted by a third party can provide a safe way for the entire workforce to safely share critical information, raise red flags, share controversial ideas, and debate issues that matter.

What's happening in your business that you don't know about?

Ask about a quick low risk option to learn what your employees see.

6 Signs it Works

Plane Crashes

Plane crashes have virtually been eliminated due to the Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS). It empowers people to confidentially report any issue without fear of punishment, improving the system and saving lives.

Speak-Up

Getting employees to speak-up when they see or hear something that can negatively impact the business goes against most people's base instinct. Give them a way to tell you in time act.

Fraud Examiners

In their Report to the Nations over the last 10 years, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners has reported that the most effective way to identify fraud in any organization is through anonymous reporting systems.​

Anonymity

Employees are more inclined to reveal all the facts when they have a safe way to report problems and know there won't be any blow-back.

Crowd Wisdom

Research has shown that the insight of the many can lead to a better result. The best results have been found with informed groups. Where individual members have better knowledge of the subject than the general population.

Unbiased Insight

Your workforce holds a wealth of wisdom. Avoid group think or loudest voice wins. Give your people a confidential way to share their knowledge independently.

Fire Towers

Fire lookout towers strategically positions fire lookouts to see smoke, determine its location, and direct fire suppression personnel to the fire. They also report weather changes and plot and monitor lightning strikes.

More Risks

Potential business risks can strike from more places than risk management teams can imagine. Your workforce has vantage points and perspectives that can serve as an early warning system.

Neighborhood Watch

Since law enforcement can't be everywhere, neighborhood watch programs empower citizens to be active in community safety. It draws on the compassion of average people to lend their neighbors a helping hand.

Stop Profit Leaks

Like training neighborhood watch volunteers, businesses can train and empower employees to safely report on the many ways that the company misuses its resources.

Social Science

A large part of the human brain is designed to handle social interaction. It is a survival instinct to "go along to get along" to avoid being outcast by our tribe. People will go to great lengths to avoid criticism and ridicule.

Eliminate Fear

You need innovation. People fear failing. Create a safe environment where people can voice their disruptive ideas without embarrassment or reputation damage.
