…when an organization is doing badly…

Fear is such a powerful motivator that it can force us to act in ways that are completely counter to our own or our organization’s best interests. Fear can push us to choose the best finite option at the risk of doing infinite damage. And when we face fear, we hide the truth. Which is pretty bad in any circumstance, but when an organization is doing badly, it’s even worse. [emphasis added]
