Build Confidence: More Productive Business

Meet The Beasts helps your staff to face & overcome their fears, in a safe, non-threatening atmosphere, so that they can face daily challenges with confidence, be more productive, with greater satisfaction & achieve more than they (& you) thought possible.

Is Fear at Work a Problem?

[Overcoming fears & building confidence for business]This headline, from Jobsite answers the question succinctly & clearly:

'1 in 3 employees would reject their dream job if it meant facing their biggest fear, according to research conducted by Jobsite in February 2019'

Research & statistics consistently show that fear at work is a serious issue & that failure to address the 'elephant in the room' leads to significant decreases in confidence, morale & staff retention. It also leads to increased absence through illness. In 2019 (Pre-Covid) the cost of sickness absence was a median of £568 per employee.

But, turning this on its head, increased confidence motivates staff to take on tasks more effectively as individuals & in their teams. Everyone benefits.

Stuart has written a short article about Fear at Work on this web site.

Does Facing Your Fears Work?

[Overcoming fear as a team, strengthens the team - Meet The Beasts]The principle of facing your fears to reduce their negative impact & increase confidence is the basis of psychological therapy called Encounter Therapy.

The ability to face our fears is critical for success in any sphere of life, including business. Employees & customers infused with fear attack productivity at all levels. We invest time & effort teaching our staff how to reduce fear (resistance) in our customers, but we often neglect those same staff's fears.

Facing challenges individually, supported by the rest of the group, people experience a real, often life-changing sense of achievement which empowers them to face & overcome day-to-day hurdles; professionally & personally. Just as fear is transferrable, so is confidence & success.

Improving what we do involves change & change involves fear. We can only bring change when we are prepared to change ourselves & for many of us, that is a frightening thought.

Overcoming that fear helps to remove the barriers to change & therefore, the barriers to improvement. Not all of us are willing to change, but those who are, can. They are the people you want in your business, because they lead by example & motivate others to do the same. Change in one small area is contagious & will spread throughout an organisation by inspiration rather than perspiration.
