Is the culture at your workplace one of trust or fear? A culture of fear can creep into your organization insidiously, so it's best to know the signs before it becomes a problem.
One hallmark symptom of culture of fear is that your organization's bottom-line is stagnating. Though this can happen for many other reasons, making sure your organization is built on trust will help prevent it. Other major symptoms that you may have a fear-based culture are employees are walking around with their heads down, shut down, and are too fearful to take initiative when they otherwise would. While these are some rather obvious signs, more subtle actions and behavior can also indicate an unhappy culture.
