2. What we keep inside, feeds us!

Problem
An employee accepts all tasks due to the fear of saying „NO“ to the superior.
Common reaction
Superiors don’t see this behavior as a problem until the employee fails to achieve the goal. Then superiors undertake necessary measures such as: training, coaching, threatening or altogether.
Anatomy of this problem
The fear of abandonment is the usual trigger for such a yes-man behavior. It is formed in the early childhood when the child was not allowed to express his/her disagreement by his/her parents or significant others. Ever since then the child, now an adult, has been convinced that it is ok to suppress his/her own needs, wishes and opinions so to satisfy the other side and avoid being rejected.
