The benefit of fear

Fear. The word alone makes palms sweat and guts wrench. But, fear can be good for people and organizations, if it's dealt with openly and honestly. It can keep you focused on a goal and away from danger. Fear can motivate you if it doesn't paralyze you.

Effectively dealing with fear can't be done without managing your emotions because it's difficult to think clearly when your mind is overwhelmed.

Draw on your patience. Look at your plan. Engage your people.

Fear brings focus. Use it to your benefit.
