The Fear of Change

There’s a dirty little secret that no one is talking about. Want to know what it is? It’s fear of change. As many policies and procedures companies put in place to help them, fear is like the elephant in the room that no one’s talking about. No one wants to talk about their fear. It’s considered a sign of weakness.  What if your vulnerability was actually a strength?

I talked with enough people who shared with me the fear that they experience at work during change. Sometimes they fear that they won’t be able to do their new job or that they won’t get along with their colleagues or manager or that they’re going to be downsized again. Change  creates a lot of stress that flows into employees personal lives and can wreak havoc on their relationships, health and productivity.

What if we started talking about the fear of change at work? What if people actually had tools and resources they could implement to help them clear out anxiety and stress when change is happening at their job?

As a change management specialist that focuses on acknowledging and addressing the fear and mistrust that occurs in organizations during transition I can help your team navigate the uncertainty and fear that occurs during change.

Why is it important to start talking about the fear and resistance of change that occurs in organizations? Because the ensuing fear and mistrust that occurs impedes productivity, efficiency, and the bottom line.

Did You Know?

An estimated 1 Million Workers are absent every day due to stress.


“A company’s fear of failure breeds the same fear among its employees creating a ‘company sickness’ and culture of anxiety,” says Dr Sinclair. “Ironically this backfires and impacts the bottom line.”
