What Does Anxiety Look Like?
Anxiety can manifest on a team when people observe threats to their comfort, relationships, productivity, success, and sense of belonging. People will either avoid situations that make them anxious or they will do all sorts of things to escape anxiety-inducing situations. People will also seek approval or other forms of affirmation to cope with an unsafe and unpredictable situation.
These behaviors are the results of anxious feelings that are caused by anxious thoughts. Following the trail of causes can isolate the source of fear or anxiety on a team.
