        Thank you for visiting the website and for your interest in The Fearless Monkey. It’s been quite a journey! Throughout the journey I have checked where I am.  Am I just following or am I thinking for myself?

You are working in an organisation and your boss doesn’t give you the space to do what you think is good for the business. E.g. you’re not to pursue other avenues that you think might lead to more business, or you are not encouraged to talk to colleagues in other depar...
