Why Do Bosses Panic?

Since some of my recent blog entries have addressed parallels between bosses and children, I wanted to share an excerpt from a recent article I wrote called Childlike Fear, Corporate Consequences. If you’ve ever dealt with a boss who has behaved irrationally, this might help explain why.

“Sometimes Terrible Office Tyrants (TOTs)™ panic excessively for no reason, like little tykes. It can be caused by small irritable things, like no breakfast or sleep deprivation — or something seemingly serious, such as a possible dip in profits. But it’s the “possible” that makes the difference between a clear thinking manager and a TOT. Toddlers and young children can have supercharged irrational fears because for them, in the absence of knowledge, anxiety quickly fills the void.”
