The Fears of our Leaders

The fears that haunt leaders today


​​

The fear of a smarter underling


The fear of one's weaknesses being found out


The fear of nonsense decisions being discovered


The fear of being wrong and avoiding it by doing nothing and blaming others


The fear of being responsible and accountable that sets in when appointed and reality kicks in


The fear of not knowing how to start


The fear of tomorrow


The fear of being alone (hence they nurture a few allies in the group which alienates all the others)


The fear of one's own demons (racism, gender inequality, ignorance,…)


The fear of the fears of their boss


The fear of not knowing what to fear next


The fear of fearing, creating more fear resulting in a feedback loop from hell



Remember, you don't have to be a leader.​
