Want to know more about how fear and trust affect each other? Knowing a lot about COR.E Wellness Dynamics and IPEC’s Energy Leadership has given me a lot of experience seeing how these feelings show up in both personal and work settings. Here’s a better look at why fear hurts trust and what you can do about it.

IPEC Coaching Energy leadership: What You Need to Know

One of a kind, IPEC’s Energy Leadership approach looks at human energy. It sorts our reaction and responses into seven different levels of energy which represent 7 levels of consciousness, awareness, engagement, and confidence. At the very bottom, Level 1 is damaging and catabolic. Level 7 is the most powerful and effective. Fear, on the other hand, makes it hard for many people to believe and trust at Level 2, which is also damaging and catabolic.

Everything You Need to Know About How Fear Kills Trust

Fear is a way of protecting yourself. It brings about doubt, skepticism, and defensiveness when it takes over our emotions. This is how it changes different things:

  1. Personal Relationships: Being hurt or betrayed in the past can make it hard to trust others fully.

  2. In the workplace, leaders who are scared might not want to delegate, which can create an environment of mistrust and inefficiency.

  3. Personal Growth: We can’t reach our full potential if we are afraid of things like failing or unwilling to
    step out live beyond our comfort zone.
