“The key to change… is to let go of fear.” – Rosanne Cash

I recently came across an article on executive courage at http://bit.ly/7gWhjY and was reminded of the impact that fear has within organizations today.

Fear is a limiting factor to you and the teams you lead. It negatively impacts culture, team work, and productivity. Fear materializes in many ways through a transformation including but not limited to:

  • Fear of the unknown – “I have no idea what our future business model looks like.”
  • Fear of the known – “Every time I talk with that person they bite my head off, so I gave up talking with them.”
  • Fear of Maslow’s hierachy of needs – “If I share my ideas they may be contrary to my boss and my job may be jeopardized.”

Fear can paralyze organizations at all levels. However, when confronted with courage, companies can overcome their fears and make a difference. I propose that people and organizations achieve their greatest accomplishments when they overcome their fears, or those things that hold them back.

Now is the time for courage. When the competition is fearful of the known, unknown, and/or hierarchy of needs, be courageous and thrive.
