IN THIS SUMMARY

Common workplace fears—missing a deadline, being criticized in public, being fired—tend to influence people’s behavior at work more than enthusiasm, empathy, trust, or joy. The prevalence of fear and its widespread use as a management tool comes at a serious cost, however. The harm done to employees physically and emotionally leads to lost time, lower profits, inefficiencies, minimal innovation, and less competitiveness for companies. In The Fear-Free Organization, Paul Brown, Joan Kingsley, and Sue Paterson use their expertise in the brain sciences and organizational leadership to demonstrate why and how companies should abandon management through fear and embrace a new paradigm. They apply insights from their research to develop superior models for leadership, management, human resources, and business culture.
