A workplace culture that revolves around fear creates an unhealthy work environment for not just the employees, but also the company’s future growth. Fear conditioning can cause people to become afraid of raising questions about why things are done the way they are. Ultimately, stopping employees from thinking about if things can be done better.

The Five Monkeys Experiment accurately portrays the full effect of fear conditioning. In this experiment, the monkeys are forced into thinking that something had to be done a certain way without any explanation.

But this does not just apply to these monkeys. If you always do what you have always done, you will continue to receive the same results. Do not let fear in the company prevent you from seeking opportunity when it arrives.
