The fear of making mistakes
The fear of making mistakes can have individual (psychological) or organizational causes. The classic individual cause is perfectionism, which leads to lack of productivity, tense climate, micromanagement, and burnout.
The organizational cause can come from a culture in which exists a fear of failure, a culture in which failure is analyzed not to see what we can learn from it, but to find and punish the guilty, a culture that punishes action, but not the mistakes made due to inaction, causing a total lack of initiative.
I teach Thinking and Deciding in Business for multiple schools in Romania and abroad. On top of that, I am an angel investor, a trainer and I run marathons, often dressed as Mickey Mouse.
