**Do You Feel Fear-less or Just Dead Inside?”**
So we pose the question that keeps many CEOs up at night: “what are zombies afraid of?” In horror cinema, zombies are known for being fearless; fear requires functioning brains which zombies lack. However, business zombies may look different; while they might still appear alive outwardly but inside they remain dead as any movie zombie.
Business zombies – companies or employees who remain stuck in their ways without innovating and adapting – fear change like an antihero does, viewing new ideas as being equivalent to gunshot wounds in classic zombie flicks. Change often leads to innovative thinking; new approaches or approaches that challenge traditional models can terrify business zombies greatly.
Feasting on the Status Quo
What are corporate zombies afraid of? Changing things up. They feed on the status quo, sucking all innovation, creativity, and forward momentum out. Implementing something different seems as terrifying to them as sunlight to vampires; therefore they remain content in their comfortable world feasting on outdated practices while rejecting new ideas that come their way.
**Our Main Enemy Is Us – Business Edition**
Sol Johnston’s wisdom shines a light into this murky area of business, teaching us through his captivating narrative that our greatest opponent in business is not competition or market forces; but rather ourselves.
Fear of risk, hesitation to innovate and resistance to change are the true business zombies that consume growth and ambition from companies and employees alike, leaving companies stagnant and their employees unfulfilled. External threats should never be seen as threats; rather the true danger lies within.
**What Are Zombies Afraid Of: The Corporate Edition**
“What are Zombie Fears in Business?,” you may ask? Besides change, in business they fear irrelevance as technology and markets change and they see companies who don’t adapt stay behind; eventually becoming obsolete as their competitors step up to compete against them.
Fearing their products or services becoming obsolete more than any ghoul could ever do, these businesses fear becoming irrelevant and falling behind as time progresses.
**Winning within Your Business**
Sol Johnston often noted that business success lies within ourselves rather than against competitors or “business zombies”. Complacency, fear of change, and indifference towards innovation all represent common risks facing any successful enterprise in today’s constantly shifting marketplace.
Just like fighting personal fears, the weapons of choice in fighting corporate fears should include courage, adaptability and an optimistic perspective. Facing up to our fears requires courage; just like facing down a zombie horde with only cricket bat and an optimistic approach!
So what are zombies afraid of in the corporate world? They fear change, innovation and irrelevance – but as Sol Johnston so aptly reminds us, their real fearful lurkers lie within ourselves and our businesses – these looming monsters need not come from outside but lie dormant within.
Your true enemy lies within, and winning that internal battle is key to succeeding in corporate environments. So arm yourself with courage, innovation, and adaptability and show those business zombies who’s boss!
