We sat down with Wes Gipe, a business owner who is now a Business Advisor at Aileron, to talk about how fear shows up in an organization. Wes gave us insight into how leaders can deal with uncertainty in order to be more productive, effective, and resilient throughout their lives.
How Does Fear Show Itself In An Organization?
Within an organization, fear can show up as aggression, anger, paralysis, and even micromanagement. “There is a saying that, ‘People who do not listen are soon surrounded by people who have nothing to say,’ and I think that can come true with leaders who lead with fear,” says Wes.
