The Fear-Free Organization: Vital Insights from Neuroscience to Transform Your Business Culture

By Joan Kingsley, Sue Paterson, Paul Brown

Leadership that makes a difference takes guts and confidence, plus belief in oneself and belief in the key players in the organization. It is built on trust, not fear. Scared people spend a lot more time plotting their survival than working productively, so TheFear-Free Organization has zero tolerance for bullies, vicious gossip, undermining behaviors, hijacking tactics, political jockeying for position or favoritism. Instead, it works on inspiration. Evidence from neuroscience shows that individuals and organizations are more successful when people are encouraged to take risks, to explore new ideas, and to channel their energies in ways that work for them. The Fear-Free Organization reveals how our new understanding of the neurobiology of the self - how the brain constructs the person - can transform for the better the way our businesses and organizations work.

"I cannot remember the last time I read such a creative, engaging, and absorbing book as "The Fear-free Organization." Beautifully written, clearly structured and brimming with compelling case studies, this new work transports us into the psychological core of organizational life and provides us with rich recipes for understanding the complex and often tortured dynamics of the workplace. Brown, Kingsley and Paterson deserve our congratulations for offering us an important set of solutions. This book will be essential reading for anyone who has ever worked in an office."--Professor Brett Kahr, Sr. Clinical Research Fellow "Psychotherapy & Mental Health, Centre for Child Mental Health, London ""
