Product description


"I wish I had read something like this a long time ago. In my decades as a corporate leader, I observed and learned the hard way about a lot of themes in the book.... I came to know these things were real over the years but never really understood why they were happening until reading this book." (Thomas M. Botts, retired Executive Vice President, Royal Dutch Shell)

(Professor Brett Kahr, Senior Clinical Research Fellow in Psychotherapy and Mental Health at the London Centre for Child Mental Health)

"If you work in an organization, you already know this: fear runs the place. What you may not know is that fear is going to ruin it, too, sooner or later. This book tells us why. Then it tells us how to change that." (Nancy Kline, author of Time to Think)

"The jewel in the crown of all the recent books on this subject... All leaders of complex organizations should have this book by their bedside and their office." (Professor Patrick Pietroni, Director, Centre for Psychological Therapies in Primary Care, University of Chester)

And then the authors provide some practical advice on how to change things for the better." (Charlie Geffen, Chair, London Corporate, Gibson Dunn)

"[T]he essential manual for effective management. It provides the practical methods needed to motivate people to do their best work. The authors explain, simply and understandably, how to apply the most advanced neuroscientific insights to business management. It is ground breaking and indispensable." (Dotson Rader, Contributing Editor, Parade)

"Fear pervades the workplace. It corrodes profits and stunts growth. This essential read equips CEOs with the tools to build a fear-free environment -and success." (Robin Morgan, CEO, Iconic Images)

"[I]t outlines a range of effective, practical strategies to help build a healthier environment that can deliver real and measurable benefits to the individual, teams and the organization - the fear-free organization." (Dr Brian Marien, Founder and Director of Positive 2016-07-11)

"Leadership is about making sense, and this book makes a lot of sense. I highly recommend it for leaders, and those who aspire to become one." (Rien Herber, former Shell Executive and Professor at Groningen University)
