Great forcite you’ve outlined here Aditya.
I’d discussed this topic with a client who brought the “fear of being watched” or monitored by their boss while working from home has become sort of a new thing due to COVID and perhaps many companies who found the power of the pivot – no office space to lease, no stolen office supplies, slip and fall claims, no sexual harassment, and no meetings where there is more said than done – which generate higher profits. Even the NIH (National Institute of Mental Health) who says, “The fear that people with social anxiety disorder have in social situations is so strong that they feel it is beyond their ability to control.”
I recently explained it like this… McDonald’s has billboards and when you drive by, you don’t normally put your hand out of the window and give the sign the “thumbs-up” for the beautiful Golden French fries you just witnessed. Maybe some do, primarily children who want a new toy #HappyMeal
Again, great takeaways, and I certainly appreciate the time you put into this post.
