Downward Focus is the hardest of the barriers to talk about…and it likes it like that. It’s the shadow side, so it’s responsible for all the unspoken “stuff” that goes on. Usually behind a charming mask.
In an organisation this includes bullying, power play, narcissistic leadership, corrupt or criminal activity…it could look like expense fiddling, phone hacking, abuse or harassment, neglect, grossly inflated remuneration…
Workplace stress is on the increase, and there are a lot of reasons for this. But one is what happens to you if you’re working in a Downward Focus organisation…you know ‘stuff’ is going on but can’t do anything about it.
Or think you can’t.
The more people acknowledge, talk about and deal with Downward Focus, the more it throws light on the shadow.
