Fear in the Workplace
I'm in the process of revising some classes and have been examining the significant role played by fear in the workplace.
Fear drives so many decisions; in fact, it is difficult to find a major one that is not fear-influenced.
There are the familiar security-related fears that cause the person to take and keep undesirable employment because of the desire to provide for basic needs. There are the status-related fears that encourage the maintenance of a certain image or lifestyle. Finally, there are the comfort-related fears that cause the person to shy away from new challenges and even success because the current situation, although inferior, is regarded as preferable to an unknown.
Which ones am I missing?
