(Via Zane Safrit) “This Manager of Fear has a simple job description: Help management and others see how their fear — when left unchecked — can lead to bad business decisions, mediocre work and possibly the demise of the business.” Culture of Fear is Creeping Into the Workplace.
I would have a manager of growth instead of a manager of fear. This manager should understand that we have to face our fears to grow, we have to leave our comfort zone. The manager of growth has a simple job description: Help management and other leave there comfort zone, using integrity to focus on controllable actions (and not on goals).
Actually every manager should be a manager of growth.
