Fear – it’s one of the certainties in life, along with death and taxes. We see its impact in both organisational and personal life.
Just last week Mike Ashley hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons, when the fear culture at Sports Direct was uncovered. This week, it’s the football hooligans spreading fear throughout Euro 2016 who are in the news.
And its negative impact is far-reaching. Fear has a cascade effect – it doesn’t just impact those directly involved. Take a look at the current situation at Euro 2016 to see this. Football hooligans clash; fans not involved end up afraid, some coming home early, others are left wondering whether of not to travel after all.
